    Needy families are getting some chicken.

    More than 50,000 pounds of kosher poultry is being donated to needy families in New York City.
    The Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty says families who keep kosher can find it especially difficult to put food on the table.

         In the past, tuna has been the primary source of protein available at the council's kosher food pantry.
    The donation was announced Friday by Mayor Michael Bloomberg; Greg Rosenbaum, the owner and CEO of Empire Kosher; and Stuart Appelbaum, president of the Jewish Labor Committee.
