A City Island chef and a non profit worked together to get over 100 meals to those in need on Christmas.
Chef Alex Pertsovsky has owned Archie's Tap and Table for more than five years.
On friday, he and his family came together to lend a hand to others
He gave away more than a hundred meals with everything from black beans and pork to mac and cheese and banana bread.
Pertsovsky says that helping others is actually helping him through the pandemic.
"Running a restaurant is really difficult at the moment and I wanted to do something that not only was positive for other people but it felt rewarding," he says.
The chef partnered with nonprofit 'City Island Rising' to get more food to more people.
