Brookdale Chrysler, Chevrolet provide hunger relief to area elementary school

Employees from Brookdale Chrysler got in on a monthly bulk food distribution effort at Zanewood Elementary School in Brooklyn Center, where children and families shopped and filled bags with free edibles for home.

Volunteers pulled items from roughly 4,000 pounds of food delivered to the cafeteria, setting it out on tables for people to make their selections.  Families are encouraged to take 26 pounds per student. There are about 160 students between this school and a second school site in Brooklyn Center.

“The rush starts about four and goes for 45 minutes, “ said Tony Mauricio, operations manager for CEAP, the Community Emergency Assistance Program.

CEAP purchases some of the food and collects donations from area Cub Foods stores, Walmart and Kwik Trip, he explained.  Brookdale Chevrolet has since joined the regular effort.
