BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - Hundreds of alumni and faculty members from Berkeley College are in Brooklyn today helping with recovery efforts following Superstorm Sandy.

Along with volunteers from Deloitte LLC, the faculty and former students are stepping in at a Bed-Stuy food pantry to help make supply bags for storm survivors.

Volunteers at St. John's Bread and Life Program put together bags containing non-perishable food items that food bank workers will hand out to Sandy victims in the Coney Island area next week.

The food pantry hands out about 300 bags per week and says demand has increased since the storm.
