Ra Thanks Community For Generous Support Of Food Drive

Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) is pleased to announce that his annual Breakfast Food Drive was a success. Ra and his partners from Hillside Public Library, Notre Dame School, New Hyde Park Road School and St. Anne’s School collected over 800 pounds of food.

The donations support the mission of the AsparaGus’ Food Truck, a Long Island Cares initiative which provides nutritious, no-cost breakfasts to food insecure youth during the summer.

“The pandemic really exposed how many families are just paychecks away from food insecurity,” said Ra. “I’m really pleased with how successful our drive was this year. We couldn’t have done it without our amazing partners. I’m so appreciative of each and every donation. People in this community are really great neighbors. What Long Island Cares has done with the food truck is creative, it’s engaging and it’s filling a real need.”
