Brooklyn, NY (7/20/20) – On Saturday, July 18, State Senator Kevin Parker teamed up with Jamaican Consul General Alsion Roach Wilson to distribute over 400 boxes of baked goods to members of the Jamaican community in Central Brooklyn. The event started at 9:30 AM in front of the HSBC bank near Flatbush Junction and was in partnership with the National Bakery, Little Caribbean NYC, Western Union, and Metro Plus Health.
Senator Parker expressed his pleasure at the chance to work with General Alsion Roach Wilson and provide for one of the largest Jamaican diasporas in the country, “The Jamaican Consulate in New York City has always done more than serve as a political liaison; they take an active role in supporting the large Jamaican diaspora through various events and community outreach programs. I’m extremely lucky to have their help in addressing the issue of food insecurity in the district.” He also gave thanks to the other partners of the event, especially the National Bakery, “The National Bakery provided us with Spice Buns, Water Crackers, Tea Biscuits, Bulla and other fresh-bread items. Without their generous donations, this event would not have been possible.”
