To ensure that local families in need are well-nourished, the Riverhead Central School District is once again partnering with Long Island Cares to distribute free food and other items on a monthly basis at its five elementary schools — Aquebogue, Phillips Avenue, Pulaski Street, Riley Avenue and Roanoke Avenue — throughout the school year.

The Mobile School Pantry will begin distribution on Monday, Sept. 9. The pantry will be open on Mondays from 5-6 p.m. at Roanoke, 6:15 p.m. at Phillips, and 7:15-8 p.m. at Pulaski. On Fridays, the pantry will be open from 5-5:45 p.m. at Aquebogue and 6:15-7 p.m. at Riley.

A full list of dates is available under “Community Resources” on the district’s website,
