Proprietors of Port Washington Meat Center, Elias and Helen Moraitis, recently donated chicken and meat and 170 pounds of fish to the Port Provides Powered by the Nicholas Center pantry program. These donations will go directly to families in need in our community.

The Meat Center works on best pricing to partner with The Nicholas Center to provide chicken and meat to over 1,600 neighbors in our area each week.

As part of the Port Provides program, Autistic adults from The Nicholas Center source, package and deliver meat as well as cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items to food pantries in Port Washington including Our Lady of Fatima Parish Outreach, Littig House and St. Peter of Alcantara Parish Social Ministry.

“The Nicholas Center and the local pantries we serve are grateful for the support of the Port Washington Meat Center and Mr. and Mrs. Moraitis…this is community working together in action!” Lee Anne Vetrone, The Nicholas Center’s Director of Development, said.

The Nicholas Center has revolutionized the way Autistic adults learn, live and work by offering vocational training, supported employment, meaningful community-based projects and vital peer connections.

Port Provides Powered by The Nicholas Center is an innovative program pairing two underserved and often marginalized populations – those with Autism and those struggling with food insecurity in our communities.

The Nicholas Center procures, organizes and delivers essential items – personal hygiene and cleaning supplies and meat to 2,000 neighbors-in-need via local food pantries.

Participants gain valuable vocational skills and build confidence as they interact with community members at the pantries…the food pantries receive vital donations and assistance from our team! A win-win.
