Front of the food line

Every Wednesday and Saturday, no matter the weather, hundreds of people stand in line on the sidewalks in front of the Word of Life Food Pantry in Morrisania.

They arrive at 4 or 5 in the morning, sometimes even the night before, hoping to draw a good number that will put them in front. Their goal, every week, is to leave the pantry with a full cart of food.
