Rockland organization offers drive-thru food distribution for people in need

An organization in Rockland distributed thousands of pounds of food Tuesday but had to do it differently than it normally would because of the coronavirus.

For the first time in about 10 years, the Rockland Community Against Hunger's Get Fresh Food distribution turned into a drive-thru.

People drove to each station and a volunteer loaded their car with the food.

A dozen food pantries and feeding programs spanning from Suffern to Nyack were on the receiving end of the donations.

Anyone in Rockland County in need of food can go to Rockland Hunger or call 211.
