Hunter College NYC Food Policy Center

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is rapidly changing life in New York City. To help connect community members in need with food resources during this challenging time, the Hunter College NYC Food Policy Center is currently creating Coronavirus NYC Food Resource Guides for each NYC neighborhood.


Neighborhoods are divided by the 59 community districts defined by the New York City Department of Health. The neighborhood lines and zip codes used for these reports are based on the districts used in the 2018 Community Health Profiles, which contain over fifty measures and statistics of neighborhood health.


Each resource guide includes information related to food access within the community, such as meals for students and seniors during this time, delivery services for people with disabilities, and resources for immigrants. Resource guides will be published and updated as rapidly as possible, in order of the NYC neighborhoods most impacted by poverty and food insecurity.
