The Bronx

With more than a quarter of the residents facing food insecurity in the borough, The Bronx faces one of the highest rates of hunger in the United States. Additionally, nearly 25% of older Bronx residents live below the poverty line, putting them at risk of malnourishment without our regular deliveries.    

Citymeals delivered over 275,000 meals to 3,700 homebound elderly residents of the Bronx in the last fiscal year.

The Citymeals Distribution Center in The Bronx New York provides emergency meals.

The Bronx is also home to Citymeals’ Distribution Center in Hunts Point, which is the hub for all our meal programs including our emergency preparedness work. We always keep 50,000 meals on hand ready to be distributed at a moment’s notice, in case of local emergencies like storms and power outages.

The Distribution Center is also home to our Mobile Food Pantry program, which provides supplementary food for older New Yorkers at greatest risk of malnourishment.
