With a $200,000  grant from Step Up for Better Living, the BronxWorks food pantry is now able to open every Saturday.  

The pantry was previously operating on a biweekly schedule.

Organizers say they've seen a drastic increase in the number of people needing food.

Representatives from Step Up for Better Living say they were happy to step in to help.

"It's very obvious that there are families who need help with food. They need help with rent. They have many issues. So, the one thing we want to make sure is that people are not going hungry,”  Board President for Step Up for Better Living Brad Hamburger said.
