[ARCHIVED] easy way to donate food to interview with Erica Leon, nutritionist (food/COVID-19)

Donate food to poor- Trudy Holand, offered her Greenburgh house as a drop off location
SIDE EFFECT OF COVID 19-- PEOPLE'S DIETS-----a radio interview with Ardsley nutritionist Erica Leon: Link below


Last week I reported that Stephen Franciosa was collecting food for the poor and dropping the food off to Grace Church in White Plains -which has a food pantry serving the hungry. Stephen has been driving from house to house picking up food. Our community has been generous with donations. Thank you!  

 Trudy Holand, a resident of Joyce Road in Hartsdale asked me to share with the community another very generous offer: She’s working with Stephen collecting food donations.  If residents drop off food at her house the food will be donated to area churches/synagogues that are serving those who have lost their jobs and are hungry, homeless during Covid-19.  You can reach Trudy (who is also very active in the community) at  Trudy, Stephen and those who have been donating food to the hungry represent the best of Greenburgh and why we live in a special town.

A SIDE EFFECT OF COVID 19-- PEOPLE’S DIETS-----a recent radio interview with Ardsley nutritionist Erica Leon: Link below 

A side effect of COVID-19 is people’s diets. During COVID 19 people are struggling with stress. Some people turn to eating to cope with stress- not hunger. One of the prominent advocates of good nutrition is Erica Leon of Ardsley - wife of the former Mayor, Jay Leon. Erica was my guest on a recent WVOX radio interview and we talked about good nutrition during this difficult time in many people’s lives.

Erica, a registered nutritionist,  discusses how you can have a better relationship with food and your body. She has worked in the field for 35 years and has a bachelor’s degree in nutrition from Cornell and a master’s degree in clinical nutrition from NYU.

Here is the link to the interview on YouTube:
