Leftover concession food goes to LI's needy

Rock and Wrap It Up is a Cedarhurst-based anti-poverty think tank with more than 400 volunteers on the Island and thousands nationwide. Its volunteers recover prepared concession food from sporting events and concerts that would otherwise go to waste and deliver it to food pantries. On one recent local drop-off, food was brought to the United Methodist Center in Far Rockaway. Videojournalists: Jessica Rotkiewicz and Chris Ware (Feb. 5, 2013)
