Food insecurity in the Bronx is the highest in NYC and it has been that way for as long as we can remember. 

According to Food Bank New York City, 50% of our food pantries and soup kitchens closed during the pandemic, in which 90% of them were located in the neediest communities.  

The South Bronx has the highest rate of food insecurity in the country at 37% percent. 

We need food sustainability and if necessary, we will take the fight to the federal government to solve this issue!
