When a retired police sergeant teamed up with a Teaneck restaurant, the result was 50 hot meals to feed the front-line workers Wednesday night at Holy Name Medical Center. 

BV Tuscany Ristorante on Cedar Lane has been open for business, doing curbside pick-ups like everyone else. Longtime customer and retired Teaneck police sergeant Phil Lavigne said when he went to pick up his food order, the owner asked him if he knew how he could help do his part during the coronavirus pandemic.

“He really wanted to donate meals, but didn’t know how to go about it,” Lavigne said.
