Challenge

In New York City, the Coronavirus crisis has significantly exacerbated systemic challenges for marginalised communities in accessing healthy, fresh, affordable food. These challenges include availability of food due to shop closures and supply chain issues, the quality of food with little fresh and healthy food available, as well as people lacking the financial resources to purchase fresh food due to loss of income.

Solution

This project will address these challenges and support recovery of families affected in South Bronx. NYCP's Live Healthy! team will provide food through their farm-share programme and provide education on healthy eating directly.

Long-Term Impact

Wider community engagement and long-term change will be provided by Young Leaders from New York Common Pantry community partner, City in the Community. They will be trained to support food distribution, educating others about the benefits of healthy eating for individual and community health.
