COVID-19 Resources in the Bronx

I hope you’re all safe and well at home. I’ve been sharing some resources and local businesses that are still open for takeout and delivery over on Instagram, but I received some information from Hunter College’s New York City Food Policy Center about emergency food resources throughout the city, so I thought I’d pass along the info for anyone who could use it. The guide is updated every 3-5 days, but as everything in the wake of this pandemic changes from day to day, make sure you double check before heading out. It’s broken down by neighborhood, so check it out to see what’s available near you.
