October 2, 2014

On Sept. 23, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, second from right, joined Councilmembers Karen Koslowitz, Rory Lancman and Mark Weprin at the Masbia soup kitchen at 98-08 Queens Blvd. in Rego Park to help provide hot meals to those in need.

Koslowitz, Lancman and Weprin all provide pubic funding for the soup kitchen, which serves needy residents in a restaurant setting with volunteer waiters.

Masbia also provides prepared packages of food for hungry residents to take with them on the weekends.
