Seniors from Saunders and Archbishop Stepinac high schools are using their time outside the classroom to feed hundreds of people in Yonkers - with help from local businesses.  
The grassroots effort stemmed from Richard Schray, of A&R Geckos.
Schray decided to distribute free meals to families in need during the COVID-19 with help from a few friends in the community.
"We funded it ourselves, A&R Geckos - the company that I own. Homefield Deli supplied the food and AMVETS let us use the place to help send out the food,” he says.
Schray recruited the local high school students to lend a helping hand.
"It went quick, surprisingly 480 meals went out in 45 minutes the most - they were gone,” he says.
Although it didn't take long for the meals to be distributed, he hopes the good deed will leave a lasting impression during this time of need.
