Households in the Northwest Bronx are Food Insecure
This is unacceptable
The NW Bronx Food Justice Coalition is made up of a network of local community organizations and residents of Riverdale, Kingsbridge, and Marble Hill. Our mission is to take active, targeted steps to improve our community's health and well-being by addressing the impact of food insecurity and limited access to affordable and fresh food for older adults.
The Northwest area of the Bronx needs to support established food pantries in the area to ensure more access to food nutrition.
Make a donation to support the Food Pantries in our area:
