Distributing Meals in Areas Affected by Sandy

emergency services coney island

A month after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the Northeast, there are some communities that are still suffering the negative impacts of this natural disaster. Hurricane Sandy destroyed homes and disrupted lives in many areas of New Jersey and New York. Recovery is underway, but some of these residents are currently living in a precarious situation, in homes without power or heat. In these communities, the certainty of having access to a warm meal is a welcomed relief.


In partnership with the NYC Human Resources Administration, Whitsons is still operating three sites in Coney Island and the Rockaways. In these hard-hit areas, life is not back to normal yet, and thousands of neighbors are relying on city-sponsored food tents for the daily meals as the local food sources such as supermarkets were also damaged by the storm.


Below is a link to a video produced by NY News 1 channel featuring the role of the food distribution sites in the affected communities.
