Hochul chills with local parish on MLK Day, helps stock Loisaida CommUnity Fridge

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.
