World Central Kitchen helps feed Bronx families during coronavirus pandemicPosted: Updated:
Members and volunteers from the World Central Kitchen at the William Hodson Senior Center on Webster Avenue handed out packed lunches to Bronx families in need Tuesday.
The organization distributed thousands of pack-and-go meals at churches, to senior citizens and community centers throughout the Bronx.
Organizations, as well as New Yorkers, are heeding Mayor Bill de Blasio's call to step up and help each other during the nationwide crisis.
About 5,000 packed meals were handed out at seven different locations throughout the city. Bronx residents tell News 12 that every bit helps during this tough economic time when the future is uncertain.
They say charitable efforts like this one will be needed more than ever now that the financial impact of coronavirus continues to take its toll on the local economy.
