IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. (WROC) — Thousands of cars lined up down East Ridge Road in Irondequoit for a food and milk distribution event in the parking lot of the future Skyview on the Ridge.

The event started at 11 a.m. on Tuesday and before 12:20 p.m., Irondequoit Town Supervisor Dave Seeley said they are no long able to let vehicles in for the giveaway. However shortly after, the supervisor tweeted again saying, “The dairy association has told us they have additional food supply. Therefore, we are opening the mall back up for a limited time.”

The American Dairy Association North East worked with Veterans Outreach Center Inc., the Flaum Family, Upstate Niagara Cooperative, Renzi Food service and community partners to facilitate the distribution.

In a release, the organizations were planning on giving away more than 4,000 gallons of milk and more than 43,000 pounds of additional food at the drive through.

“There will be 450 boxes of meat, 1,350 boxes of produce and 360 boxes of additional dairy items, each containing 20 pounds of products. Each vehicle will receive two gallons of milk and one of each box, while supplies last,” Organizers said in a statement.

No registration for the distribution was required.
