Feeding the Community in the Aftermath of Sandy

When Hurricane Sandy hit the Northeast, Whitsons Emergency Dining was already busy preparing thousands of meals to be distributed in the areas affected by the storm. Through our partners, humanitarian organizations and local government, we have been providing nutritious meals to several affected areas immediately after the storm hit.

 

Whitsons partnered with the American Red Cross to provide over 330,000 meals, both hot and cold, to hard hit areas in New Jersey, the New York City boroughs of Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn, and Nassau and Suffolk counties in Long Island. In New York City, New York City’s Human Resources Administration (HRA) engaged Whitsons to feed residents in Coney Island, Brooklyn and the Rockaways, Queens, serving thousands of hot and cold meals every day.

 

Recovery from this severe storm is still ongoing, but for anyone severely affected by this extreme event, the certainty of knowing where your next meal is coming from is an important step back to normalcy. According to our CEO, Bob Whitcomb, “We can all be proud of the important work we are doing. It’s nice to see how appreciated this service is and the impact it is having.”
