Hundreds of turkeys handed out at Plaza Auto Mall
Volunteers with the Masbia Soup Kitchen gave out and picked up turkeys to drop off at local shelters housing asylum seekers on Monday.
The soup kitchen partnered with Council Member Farah Lewis' office and the mayor's Office of Community Affairs to offer both kosher turkeys and ready-to-eat cooked meals free to migrants and local Brooklyn residents in need.
"Some of our shelters don't have conventional ovens, and they don't have electric ovens. Most of them just have fridges, and this is our opportunity," said Council member Lewis. "It’s important for us to think about our migrants and put them first this year."
DoorDash also participated in the holiday giving, helping pick up and drop off some of the food packages across Brooklyn.
