CHELSEA — Hundreds of Chelsea residents lined the street Tuesday to receive boxes of food from a pop-up pantry, in a city that has been hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak.

 

Wearing masks and standing several feet apart, about 725 people lined up outside local coffee shop, Pan Y Cafe, to receive bundles of fruit, vegetables, dairy, rice, pasta and more.

Chelsea City Council President Roy Avellaneda, owner of Pan Y Cafe, which has been closed for three weeks due to the pandemic, helped coordinate the effort with the Chelsea Collaborative and several local businesses and community volunteers donating their time and products.
