Members of the NYPD joined forces with an acclaimed food truck Tuesday night to feed residents affected by a gas outage in Brooklyn.
Together, NYPD officers and chefs from the Snowday food truck delivered hot food to NYCHA residents at the Golden Age Center on East New York Avenue in Canarsie.
Residents gathered around the steaming food truck, which serves maple syrup-themed foods made with locally sourced ingredients.
There was reportedly enough food to serve 250 people.
“This is a collaboration of a lot of people. The Citizens Committee for New York, collaborative policing, NYCHA – all coming together to try to help the residents out,” NYPD Officer Jason Macaluso said.
The Snowday food truck is operated by the group Drive Change, which helps people who are getting out of jail or prison transition into the workforce.
