The American Red Cross has opened a feeding site in Seaford in response to the area being especially hard-hit by Superstorm Sandy.
One of six feeding sites set by the Red Cross on Long Island is at Cedar Creek Park off Merrick Road in Seaford. Red Cross workers will be at Cedar Creek Park Friday distributing water, snacks and personal hygiene comfort kits. A total of 3,300 meals (sandwiches) will be available with the site being in operation from 11 a,m. to 1 p.m. for lunch and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for dinner.
The Cedar Creek Park feeding site is expected to be in operation through at least the weekend, Red Cross officials said in a statement. The agency also established relief centers at Nickerson Beach Park in Lido Beach, Christopher Marley Park in Roslyn, H.L. Dennison in Hauppague, the Mastic Fire House and Riverhead City Center.
