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.

From the Riverdale Press: "Just trying to ensure no one goes home hungry inside Marble Hill"
By STACY DRIKS
Imagine breakfast without milk.
As time moves on for Anthony Del Orbe, the harder it gets to manage a 13-hour shift at the Marble Hill food pantry.
Located at St. Stephen’s United Methodist Church, the pantry typically provides more than 250 families with fresh produce and dry food each Monday. But the new year began without a vital resource: funding. From people in the community, since some of the usual sources of cash — like from city coffers — may not be immediately available in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Riverdale Press: "Refocusing from the virus to finding your next meal".
The Riverdale Press has an amazing write up on what the NW Bronx Food Justice Coalition has been doing to support the community. The need for emergency food increased dramatically since the pandemic and the NW Bronx Food Justice Coalition is right there building partnerships, accessing emergency food supplies, building food pantry capacity and coming up with innovative ways to teach about nutrition while social distancing.
