Rockville Centre kids provide food for Sharon's Pantry


Two groups of youngsters have dedicated time and energy to helping provide food Sharon’s Food Pantry at the Rockville Centre Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center.

Jack and Juliette Murphy organized a food drive on their block. They created and distributed fliers, and collected and delivered canned goods to Sharon’s Pantry on May 5.

Claire and Caroline Cruise, representing students from Watson Elementary School, also delivered goods from the Watson PTA’s food drive to Sharon’s Pantry.

“We are so proud of and grateful for the efforts of village residents of all ages, helping their neighbors who are experiencing food insecurity,” Rena Ribeck, founder of the Anti-Racism Project and a partner with the food pantry. “The need continues and we encourage others to consider running their own food drives.”
