Edenwald residents get holiday meal at community center event
Families in Edenwald received a full holiday dinner and a special treat from Bronx rapper Slick Rick today at the Edenwald Community Center.
Community leaders were at the event helping pass out full boxes off food to Edenwald residents.
Inside the boxes were prepared turkeys and other basic dinner necessities.
A total of 20,000 pounds of food were donated to help 300 Bronx residents.
Fresh Direct, the online grocery story, hosts many of these events during the season. This was their first event in this community, and while residents were supposed to pre-register to participate, News 12 was told no one was turned away.
