Sen. Gillibrand Visits LIC Food Pantry to Announced New Legislation
U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand visited a Long Island City food pantry Wednesday to announce legislation that would provide resources to families affected by food insecurity nationwide.
Gillibrand talked with people waiting for donated items outside the Evangel Food Pantry on Crescent Avenue before announcing the proposed measure.
“Food banks have gone above and beyond and continue to work hard to meet demand,” she said. “Government needs to do more for parents who lost jobs through no fault of their own.”
