Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island’s (JCCGCI)/Coney Island Seaside Senior Center annual Passover Food Package Distribution
In keeping with its annual tradition of ensuring that local low-income and elderly residents are able to properly celebrate the Passover holiday, Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island engaged in a massive distribution of Kosher-f…or-Passover food items on Monday, April 7th, 2014. The Council handed out over 750 specially prepared food packages at their main site on the corner of West 37th Street and Surf Avenue in Coney Island and also at several of their senior center sites. The packages were enabled by the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty, the Food Bank for New York City, and the United Way of New York City’s HPNAP (Hunger Prevention and Nutrition Assistance Program).
We were honored that our new Councilman, Hon. Mark Treyger, arrived at the very beginning of the distribution and worked along-side us throughout the main distribution session.
