Brooklyn Borough President and candidate for mayor in 2021 Eric Adam came all the way from Brooklyn to join Councilman King, to hand out the groceries. Larry Scott Blackmon Vice-President of Operation for Fresh Direct was also on hand. After the boxes of groceries were handed out Councilman King, BP Adams, and others held a press conference about the state of District 12 and the city.
