Two-hundred deliveries to food pantries and charities in the state of New York are being donated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the first appearance of God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, in Palmyra, New York, to Joseph Smith, prophet and first president of the Church.
“We’re doing a lot with the food pantries [and] feeding centers, where there’s a great need,” said Richard Long, welfare manager for the Church’s North America Northeast Area.
Deliveries began in upstate New York in the Rochester area last week, along with deliveries in the New York City area, and will continue for the next several weeks, culminating with the 200th delivery.
