Hungry New Yorkers form quarter-mile line for free food in Democrat-ruled NYC

52

While Cuomo and de Blasio fiddle, New Yorkers burn.

The radical Leftist mayor has ruined New York City. In fact, New York City is looking like Caracas. Remember that a vote for Joe Biden in November, is a vote for this horror to come to your neighborhood. Don’t make the same mistake that New Yorker’s made, America. Protect our way of life. Vote for President Trump and the Republicans in November.

Hungry New Yorkers form quarter-mile line for free food in Queens

By New York Post, August 23, 2020

The line stretched a quarter-mile before the sun was barely up Saturday, snaking around corners like bread lines in the 1930s. But the hungry in Queens are today’s New Yorkers, left jobless by the coronavirus.

Until the pandemic struck the city, La Jornada food pantry used to hand out groceries to roughly 1,000 families a week. Now, the number tops 10,000. And volunteers serve lunch every day to 1,000 — many of them kids with growling stomachs. Across the five boroughs, the hungry is in the hundreds of thousands, the Food Bank of New York estimates.

“It reminds me of the picture from the Great Depression where a man in a suit and tie is giving another man in a suit and tie an apple. That’s all he had,” La Jornada’s Pedro Rodriguez told The Post. “We give all we have, but that’s not enough.”

Seniors, moms and kids, singles — many immigrants from China and Mexico — wait for hours. They turn out in droves wherever, and whenever, the food pantry’s truck shows up.

“We feel like we are underwater, drowning in a tsunami of people,” Rodriguez, a volunteer who acts as the food pantry’s executive director, told The Post. “This isn’t like a little rain coming down. The numbers are unbelievable.”

In less than an hour Saturday, Rodriguez and his army of other volunteers — nearly 400 spread across Queens — checked off almost 250 names from the appointment list.
