This year, the focus is on equity, with a groundbreaking expansion of mobile food delivery services that will bring holiday supplies directly to select residential buildings. This is in addition to on-site distribution at the organization’s two community centers, distribution of fresh groceries, and offering families a choice between turkey and chicken.
