Brooklyn Nets and Hospital For Special Surgery Launch Food Pantry In Bed-Stuy
The Brooklyn Nets and HSS have teamed up to launch The Brooklyn Nets Food Pantry presented by HSS. The food pantry will be located at P.S. 308, Clara Cardwell School, in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy neighborhood – an area where food insecurity impacts approximately 26% of the population according to Food Bank For New York City – and will be stocked with non-perishable food items and provided the necessary support to distribute free groceries and meals on-site.
“We realize the importance of serving the community always, and especially during this time,” said Louis A. Shapiro, president and CEO at HSS. “Our efforts have expanded beyond the walls of our institution, and addressing the food insecurities right in our backyard is something we feel strongly about. By teaming up with the Brooklyn Nets, our goal is to have the food pantry serve as an essential resource for those who need it most.”
