NEW YORK CITY — The number of New Yorkers who will struggle to put food on the table this year is larger than the entire population of the city of San Francisco.

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, New York Common Pantry has distributed over 2.7 million meals, served over 40,000 households, helped over 125,000 individuals and gained over 3,500 new clients.

Celebrity chef and New York native Kelvin Fernandez has teamed with the organization to help spread the love and support in the Bronx and parts of Manhattan.

Chef Kelvin, who cooks for fellow NYC natives Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, has partnered with NY Common Pantry for Hunger Awareness Month, creating healthy dishes that are budget-conscious, just like he does on his web series, Kelvin's Kitchen.

NY Common Pantry is located in Bronx and Harlem and has 100 off-site affiliates. Head to their website for more information or to donate to their cause.
