“We’re launching a one week “All in One” Kickstarter Campaign! The funds raised will go towards including a “History of Hip Hop” component to our Roots & River Kids Summer Cultural Arts Program. Hip Hop, a musical form – and way of life – born in the Bronx, has become a powerful force of social justice around the world. We are committed to empowering our Bronx youth by educating them on the rich history of this movement – and sharing with them the skills to perform. The funds raised will specifically go towards purchasing turntables and an instructor, so the children can create their own music and perform at our end of summer recital.” – Sweet Water Dance & Yoga

When: Monday, March 27 at 6:30 PM

Where: (the orange door ) 876 Gerard Avenue, 2nd Floor

zone manhattan_stuffed pork plate

We’ve introduced meal delivery services on the site before for their convenience and nutritional value. Zone Manhattan wants to add one more benefit to the list: weight loss (or maintenance depending on your personal goals). The Bronx-based business operates out of Hunts Point in The Bronx. Unlike other food subscriptions that have risen in popularity, Zone Manhattan doesn’t deliver a pre-measured list of ingredients for cooking to your door because it does the work.. Read More

News Round Up: Use SNAP Online, Lotus Flame Closed, Get a Food Prescription

fruits-grocery-bananas-market

A new nationwide pilot program will allow Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients to buy groceries online. Lobbying efforts by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and federal lawmakers persuaded the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) to widen the businesses that accept SNAP. SNAP holders can now purchase food online from FreshDirect and Amazon. However, some supermarket workers are worried it could hurt supermarket businesses. Today, Diaz will meet with Representative Sean Patrick Maloney and hunger advocates at 10:30 at Part of the Solution to discuss New York State’s participation in the program. [Norwood News] [Crain’s New York Business]

Two Bronx eateries are participating in New York City Restaurant Week for the first time. Artie’s Steak & Seafood on City Island and Hudson Garden Grill at the New York Botanical Garden will be offering three-course lunches for $29 and dinners for $42 along with 373 other restaurants from January 23 to February 10. [Bronx News 12]

A fire damaged Indo-Caribbean and Chinese restaurant Lotus Flame, located at 866 Morris Park Avenue. On Friday January 6, a fire started in the restaurant’s basement. It escalated to a third alarm fire, spreading to the roof and damaging the two apartments above the eatery. The FDNY is investigating the cause. According to Bronx Times, Lotus Flame co-owner Savitri McCrea said the restaurant is closed indefinitely. [Bronx Times]

Some doctors are prescribing food instead of medications, reports a CBS New York article. Doctors and patients have cited the high co-pays and side effects of medication as reasons for preferring food prescriptions. Patients also reported feeling better on their doc diets. St. Barnabas Hospital in The Bronx will be prescribing food, and also plans to open a new wellness, culinary, and food garden next year. [CBS New York]
