Volunteers pack meals to feed those in need
Volunteers came together Saturday in an effort to curb hunger in Brooklyn and Queens.
Volunteers packaged over 10,000 meals at MCU Park in Coney Island to help feed those in need.
Volunteers from the Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club and the Verrazano Rotary Club teamed up with Project Outreach to make a difference.
Many of those being served by the effort are children in the community who don't have enough food to eat during weekends and holidays when school is closed.
Homeless shelters and food pantries on the receiving end of the meals say community efforts like this mean more families going to bed fed.
Volunteers say donating their time makes a world of a difference in the effort to fight food insecurity.
