Over 500 people came to the Christ Disciples International Ministries Food Pantry this past Saturday to pick up some much needed fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, and other food that a family needs but can not afford. This is a weekly occurrence by a few greatly appreciated donors such as Western Beef, Shabbir Gul, the Albanian American Open Hand Association, and the many volunteers who assist in handing out the free food.
Assemblyman Jose Rivera was on hand to capture some of the 'act of kindness' as he interviews Shabbir Gul a Bronx business owner and Mr. Aleksander Nilaj of the AAOHA. The fourth person is one of the volunteers. Also on hand was 87th A.D. District Leader Sergeant John Perez. No photos of the people receiving food were taken to uphold their dignity. About a full truckload of food was distributed.
