Suffolk County Sheriff Errol Toulon, Jr., will distribute holiday meals for those in need at the 4th Annual Suffolk Sheriff’s Office Thanksgiving Food Distribution on November 22, beginning at 10am.
Over 450 turkeys along with the trimmings (gravy, stuffing, sides) will be given out at the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office START Center, located at 200 Glover Avenue in Yaphank, NY, to pre-selected residents at a drive-thru event.
With the cost of groceries rising close to 13%, more and more Long Island families are turning to food banks. To combat the demand, families in need of holiday meal help were identified by the START Center and their partner non-profit service agencies to guarantee that they can receive a free Thanksgiving meal without worry of a shortage.
The items were donated by Suffolk Sheriff’s office partners including Long Island Cares, Caitlyn’s Vision, Compare Foods, United Way, EOC, Chubs Butcher Shop, and more.
