EOP Offers Free Hot Meals

      ELMIRA, NY (WENY) -- Elmira's Economic Opportunity Program opened its doors today to anyone who wanted to get out of the cold and enjoy some hot food and drinks.
     EOP's Community Food for Jobs Bistro served up free soup, sandwiches, coffee and tea all day today, at the Ernie Davis Community Center. Organizers tell us they wanted to provide a place where people could come in, get warm, and have a safe place to get out of the freezing weather and enjoy a meal prepared by workers in EOP's culinary arts training program.
"For us, it's our contribution to make sure that we are supporting our community, and also helping folks so they have a warm place to come, so that we can all work to stay warm together," said EOP Program CEO, Andrea Ogunwumi.
