BRONX NEWS: City offering Bronx food pantry for child welfare families


The city is launching a first-of-its-kind Bronx food pantry for families embroiled in the child welfare system.


The pantry, stocked by the Food Bank For New York City, is giving out food supplies at the Administration for Children’s Services division of child protection office.


Families are more likely to get cited for neglect or lose custody of their kids if they don’t provide the food kids need, especially if they’re already being investigated for other offenses.


“For families who are struggling to provide meals for their children, it can become very difficult,” said Food Bank Vice President Camesha Grant.


“Their children are at risk of being taken out of the home and potentially placed into a foster home,” she said. “It may not be the only thing, but it certainly becomes a factor, and an important one if it is deemed you’re unable to provide the basic necessity of food.”


The pantry opened with limited supplies in June, and will be fully operational starting with a grand opening Tuesday.


It has already distributed 32,287 pounds of food to 950 families with 2,400 children.


Parents who have to go to the ACS office for meetings with caseworkers or supervised visits can get a referral to visit the food pantry for free food to take home.


“We know that the parents we work with want to provide all the things their children need, but they often have challenges,” said ACS deputy commissioner Lorelei Vargas.


“We know how important nutritious food is during development,” she said. “They can get food on the spot with us.”


Eventually, ACS hopes to open pantries at its offices in all five boroughs, with another one coming in summer 2018.


The Bronx pantry will also offer cooking and nutrition classes.

History of the Air Jordan 13 ‘Altitude’


Air Jordan 13 Altitude Green

The Air Jordan 13 Altitude Green will release for the whole family on December 21st and will retail at 0.

With the debut just around the corner, Nike SNKRS takes in the vault of the ‘Altitude’ Air Jordan 13.

Air Jordan 13 Altitude Green

The original Air Jordan embodied number 23’s “Black Cat” alter-ego. It brought unique colors and materials to the court, along with a unique hologram reminiscent of a Black Cat’s glowing eyes. In 2005, that contrasting look of Black and Green would come to life in new form with the “Altitude” Air Jordan 13.

Air Jordan 13 Altitude Green

The 2005 “Altitude” Air Jordan 13 was unveiled unlike any Air Jordan before it. In a time where new shoes were no longer debuted on the feet of the man himself, the new Air Jordan 13 made its debut in the Winter 2004 issue of the Brand Jordan Magazine.

Air Jordan 13 Altitude Green

Not only did the new Air Jordan bring a new colorway to the table, it introduced a new combination of materials for the Air Jordan 13 with a full leather upper and premium sting ray-inspired detailing.

Air Jordan 13 Altitude Green

Fast forward to 2010, the Altitude colorway would make a return in more of a traditional fashion. The 2010 iteration of the Altitude was presented with a premium leather construction and familiar mesh overlays, reminiscent of the original Air Jordan 13.
