As grocery store shelves continue to be empty and schools have been closed down due to the coronavirus pandemic, KIPP NYC College Prep High School is working on feeding the New York City community. 
They have opened their doors to keep bellies full, and people who come in are grateful for the volunteers. 
They received donations from restaurants that have had to close their doors because of the coronavirus pandemic and in turn decided to add a food pantry to their operation. 
Assistant Principal Mike Loli tells News 12 they make fresh meals each day for their students but that now the only difference is that they are making those meals to go.

The pantry is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. 
They wear masks and gloves and practice social distancing to keep everyone safe. 
Loli says it’s all about helping others. They are working on bigger meal portions so people are stocked up for a few days and they can help flatten the curve.
