Haste, or it would go to waste
The Teamsters and Kent County YMCA stepped up when it was learned the Rhode Island Convention Center was looking to donate 10 pallets of food – most of it perishable – Friday afternoon. As the Teamsters agreed to get the food to the Y, Y director Julie Casimiro quickly got on the phone to alert area food pantries of the bounty. They showed up at the Y, while others made deliveries to shelters. Foods included boxed ready-to-cook meals, yogurt and pizzas ready for the oven. Assisting to offload the food was off-duty members of the Warwick Fire Department.
