Borough president unveils new directory listing groups offering free food

Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion Jr. unveiled a new directory Monday that's aimed at putting an end to the hunger problem in the Bronx.

The directory lists all of the emergency food programs available to residents. According to a recent poll, a high number of Bronx residents are going hungry and many don't know there is help available to them.

Carrion says his office will work with Community Boards and local organizations to distribute the new directory.
