BY THE VILLAGE SUN | Governor Kathy Hochul got a feel for the fridge experience on Martin Luther King Day.
Hochul, along with City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams, visited Trinity Lower East Side Lutheran Parish, at Ninth Street and Avenue B, on Jan. 17, the official “national day of service,” to help local food-insecure residents.
Hochul also helped replenish the Loisaida CommUnity Fridge outside. The street-corner refrigerator was installed seven months ago last summer and has been a huge hit.
They were joined by local politicians Councilmember Carlina Rivera, Assemblymember Harvey Epstein and state Senator Brad Hoylman.
Afterward, in a post on its Facebook page, the parish said: “It was a particular joy to show off the @loisaidafridge, which the Governor helped stock with fresh food!”
