Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) recently held his annual Breakfast Food Drive to benefit Long Island Cares. Participating schools included Notre Dame School (New Hyde Park), New Hyde Park Road School and Garden City Park School (Garden City Park). The mission of the Long Island Cares food truck is to deliver ready-to-eat, no cost, nutritious breakfast meals for children experiencing low food security during the summer months when school is closed.
“Our annual Breakfast Food Drive was a tremendous success. I was pleased to be joined by students from Notre Dame, New Hyde Park, and Garden City Park schools as they learn firsthand the importance of giving back to their communities. I want to thank those from the Long Island Cares team for their continued support. With their help, we can continue to provide thousands of meals, free of charge, to those in need struggling with hunger during these uncertain times,” said Ra.
