Saturday Ms. Bharati Kemerj of the Bharati Foundation joined with Shabbir Gul of the INCA Relief USA, and Aleksander Nilaj of AAOHA to hand out all kinds of food, (including pet food) to hundreds of people who lined up for blocks in the Soundview section of the Bronx. Elected officials and those running for office were on hand as City Councilman (and 15th Congressional Candidate) Ruben Diaz Sr., 32nd State Senate District candidate John Perez, and 85th Assembly candidate Kenneth Burgos went down the long line of people handing out face masks before joining the food give away.
