Borough President Adams says a lack of quality nutrition is rampant as many are not able to access proper nutrition.
About 20,000 cases of plant-based meal replacement shakes donated by Kate Farms were given out to families in Bed-Stuy Tuesday.

Adams partnered with the Campaign Against Hunger to distribute the meals, hoping to provide food to some of the most vulnerable seniors and local residents who he says are suffering not only from the impact the coronavirus is having but also from what he says is worsening food insecurity.
The Campaign Against Hunger says it expects to provide meals to about 6,000 around the city by the end of the week. They say that is four times the amount of families they usually serve.
