Mayoral candidate Kathryn Garcia discusses food insecurity in the south Bronx


As COVID-19 Food Czar, Kathryn Garcia helped provide more than 130 million meals in 2020 and has done her best to keep stomachs full throughout the pandemic.

However, the former sanitation commissioner and mayoral candidate has noticed that while Hunts Point serves as the distribution hub for the rest of the city’s food, the Bronx continues to suffer the most from food insecurity.

In her role as Food Czar, Garcia worked with Hunger Free America to set up an office in the south Bronx.

She recently laid out a plan that will help those struggling with food insecurities, especially those in the south Bronx.
