Foodlink helps give food to hundreds of families in our area, and on Saturday there was another opportunity to serve those in need.
The Affinity Orchard Place Apartments in Greece sponsored a Foodlink Mobile Pantry food giveaway at West Ridge School.
Those in need of groceries were invited to come to the pantry and pick up up to 40 pounds of free food.
There were fresh fruits and vegetables as well as canned goods and microwavable items.
“If they can save a few bucks on food this week, this month, from the event here today, it might allow them to buy a gift for their child's birthday that maybe they couldn't buy previously,” said Marc Goldfischer, the Occupancy Director at Orchard Place Apartments.
