A Korean church in Yorktown is doing its part to help feed families during the pandemic.
The Westchester Korean Seventh-Day Adventist Church on White Hill Road plans to launch a drive-through food pantry to help feed up to 200 families. The pantry will launch May 25 and be available every Monday. The food is coming from the group Feeding Westchester.
"We are really excited about this initiative," says Jane Chung, of the Westchester Korean Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
The launch of the food pantry comes as the Asian community in the tri-state area face xenophobia.
"Unfairly we have been targeted as a group as causing this disease," says Chung.
Despite the hardships, church members say the pandemic has enforced their sense of community and the importance of helping out neighbors.
The pantry will be held in the parking lot of the church and is open to anyone in the community.
