With rising inflation persistently rearing its ugly head, the need for pantries for the food-insecure around Queens and citywide is growing. Locals are relying more on organizations like Ohr Natan and their partner Met Council to supply much-needed food and other services to help get them through these very tough times. On Tuesday, August 30, Rabbi Nachum Kaziev, rabbi at Ohr Natan, welcomed elected officials for this special distribution. In attendance were State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Assembly Member Andrew Hevesi, and Council Member Lynn Schulman. Much appreciation is extended to Aaron Cyperstein, Managing Director, Legal & External Affairs for Met Council, and Benjamin Zaientz, Agency Relations Manager for Met Council, for overseeing the impactful distribution.
