THE BRONX - Hundreds of Bronx residents who depend on a Highbridge food pantry may soon have to find a new place to get their groceries.

The Muslim Women's Institute for Research and Development Pantry has just days to move out after four years at the Highbridge Community Church, which must shut down due to damage caused by a water leak.

Pantry directors say they have until May 2 when repair work begins.
