A new food pantry held its grand opening in Olinville on Wednesday.
Students and families from P.S. 113X received hot meals and bags of food to bring home from the new pantry.
The pantry, put together by The Garden of Dreams Foundation in collaboration with New York Edge, is outfitted with industrial-grade refrigeration and storage spaces. One key organizer says it'll provide more than food.
"In collaboration... to support both schools here and to help by providing access to resources and things that they may not necessarily have access to at home," said Gregory Dickinson, director of community engagement programs for New York Edge.
This is one of three new or renovated pantries from New York Edge and The Garden of Dreams opening this week, with the other two opening in Manhattan and Queens.
