Community Heroes: James Parker feeds those in need
James Parker has been running a food drive for seven years, but the COVID-19 pandemic brought unprecedented challenges in how to get food to those in need. After a number of outside distribution sites fell through, Parker reached out to County Executive Matt Meyer and with a little work, was able to relocate to the Route 9 Library & Innovation Center. Now, each week, hundreds of community residents can get the food they need safely. To see the food drive in action, CLICK HERE .
