Saturday, hundreds of people lined up around the corner to the back of the Huntington Library in Westchester Square for the free food and Turkey Giveaway sponsored by State Senator Alessandra Biaggi, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, The Hunts Point Produce Market, Local 79, and State Senator elect Nathalia Fernandez. There were information tables with samples of products and even city agencies including the Mayor’s office. 

Two hundred turkeys, bags of groceries, and bags of produce were give out to the people on line not including whatever they picked up from the information and elected officials tables such as Covid home test kits, masks, and other useful gifts from Con Edison, Fidelis Care, and other companies on site. 


The line also stretched around the corner behind this spot.



Fideli Care gave out bags with helpful health products. 



State Senator Biaggi had staff hand out COVID home test kits, masks, and hand sanitizer.


The AOC tables handed out information and answered questions from the people who passed by.
