Currently, there are over 475 outdoor learning sites in city parks and streets, in addition to 10,200 Open Restaurants and 79 miles of Open Streets.
“Beating back COVID-19 means staying smart about public events with large gatherings. It also means drawing on our city’s greatest resource: our resilience and creativity,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “New Yorkers are rising to the occasion with inventive, inspirational uses of public space, and we’ll support every effort to safely keep New York City the greatest and most vibrant city in the world.”

On Monday, September 21, 2020, Food Bank For New York City will host a pop-up food pantry at Yankee Stadium to distribute fresh produce and shelf-stable items to approximately 500 of New York’s families in need. The distribution will also include plant-based protein from Impossible Foods. Voter registration cards will be available onsite for attendees who need to register. Monday’s event will be the second time the stadium has hosted a mobile food pantry with Food Bank.
Before the pandemic, 17.5% of Bronx residents and 23.5% of children in the Bronx were food insecure. This has worsened significantly as the Bronx now has a 24.9% unemployment rate, up from 5.8% last year. Additionally, 25% of food pantries and soup kitchens in the Bronx have closed since the onset of the pandemic.
This distribution is one in a series of pop-up pantries occurring throughout the weeks ahead as part of Hunger Action Month, with the generous support of Seamless and Starbucks. This September, Food Bank is partnering with brands, advocates, influencers, and New Yorkers in the fight to end hunger. Other pop-up locations this month include Barclays Center, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, New York Hall of Science and Lincoln Center.
