Pictures from June 4, 2009

In late May, 2009 Project Oatmeal purchased 52 more pallets of oatmeal, and it was delivered throughout the five boroughs of New York City on June 4, 2009. The below pics show one of the deliveries, in which 5 pallets of the oatmeal are delivered to a food agency on Marcy Avenue, in Bedford Stuyvestant, Brooklyn. The line is around the block, as people wait for more than 3 hours, hoping for some food. On the line hoping to eat are several children, many elderly, and many people using canes and in wheelchairs. They are thrilled to receive the oatmeal.

Pictures from January 16, 2009

Project Oatmeal purchases 52 more pallets of oatmeal in December, 2008. On January 16, 2009, it is delivered. The below pics show one of the deliveries, in which 5 pallets of the oatmeal are delivered to a food agency on East 156th Street in the South Bronx. It is one of the coldest days of the year--just 2 degrees with the wind chill--yet over 100 people wait in line for food, standing in the frigid cold for nearly two hours. As you can see from the pictures below, if the oatmeal hadn't arrived, the only other food they would have walked away with on this day was carrots and collard greens.

The oatmeal is handed out.
The need is so great that several people ask for more than one container--
but the food agency must limit it to one container per person.

The oatmeal is dropped off just two hours after pickup at a food agency in Bedford Stuyvestant, Brooklyn, and distributed the next morning. As you can see, the food line stretches over an avenue long, and comprises hundreds of people--who waited in 34 degree weather for over two hours hoping to bring home some food. Many of the people are elderly and/or disabled. Some people are waiting on line on behalf of friends or family members who are too ill to wait in line themselves. Sometimes the agency runs out of food, and not everyone gets fed.
