  1. These food giveaways are for the rich
    Everyone waiting on line is fat
    Believe me no one is starving in yonkers
    Everyone is overweight
    What the should give out is gym memberships

  2. I don’t understand why there is this false assumption that people and families who attend food pantries are refusing to work or “lazy”. Perhaps the fastest growing demographic in our nation and community is the working poor. Think about it, if you are working for $15 or $20 a hour full time and have a family to support it does not go very far especially with the cost of rents in Yonkers and Westchester County. Just volunteer on a food pantry line and talk to people and you get a better understanding. Also, the distribution referred to in this article is NOT paid for by tax payer dollars as people so often complain about. It is paid for by church members with private donors.

  3. All are welcomed. No ID required or requested. No hassles. First come first serve. There will be several thousands pounds of great food free of charge.

      1. Get people jobs??? What kind of jobs should these people be “given”…….In many cases these are people that break or have broken the law regularly, choose to use drugs, have no education, and just rather get benefits without having to work. I am assuming you are making reference to the government to give these people jobs instead of food drives. Do these people deserve to be given a job over someone who is more educated with a stronger resume? I think the city council majority leader and the others responsible for these food drives should be lauded for feeding these people, rather than be blamed for these people not working

        1. If I could just add a different perspective..

          People don’t always have it as easy as you might think….

          What is wrong with giving food to people who need it? And whether you think they need it is actually not the point. If someone wants ….or needs….to show up to get some free food, let’s be thankful for the fact is it is there for them.

          Food is food folks…and we have enough differences among ourselves that are based in politics. Food does not have to be one of those.

        2. Many of these people will roll up in their nice rides and expensive cell phones and get their free goodies and then go back to their crib and continue to milk the system-as long as the pandering white liberals continue to make excuses for these people nothing will ever change-family after family will continue to be on the public dole with absolutely no effort to lift themselves up because the government will be there and so why should they work.

          1. We’re talking about food here. Food….not Mercedes Benzs..not jewelry…food!

            Why so judgmental? I’m with you on those who are ripping off the system…but go and see who is getting this food. They’re not who you say they are.
