Fidelis Care Provides More Than 14,000 Vouchers for Free Groceries This Holiday Season
November 17, 2020 (New York) – Fidelis Care is once again providing vouchers for free groceries to help New York families have a hearty, healthy holiday meal. More than 14,000 vouchers, worth over $200,000, are being distributed to agencies, schools, and organizations that partner with Fidelis Care statewide.
