THE BRONX - Actor David Arquette and representatives from the website Eco-Mom.com came out to The Bronx today to hand out 6,000 servings of baby food.

The organic baby food was handed out at the Whed-Co building in Morrisania. The area is considered a food desert, meaning it is tough to get fresh fruits and vegetables nearby, putting many residents at risk for obesity.

"Just to see the babies with all the baby food and providing really nutritious food for them, it's great," says Arquette.
