Food Distribution In The Bronx

The Turkish Cultural Center New York, Embrace Relief, and New York State Senator Luis R. Sepulveda, Parkchester Family Pharmacy, American Bangladeshi Welfare Organization USA Inc. and Youth Island New York collaborated to distribute halal food packages to muslim families facing hunger in the Bronx in New York City. One in four residents in the Bronx alone face food insecurity. Halal food was distributed to the families since the population of this area is largely Bangali and Muslim.
