Cauliflower-Rice-Stir-fry-with-Ground-Pork3

A new Keyfood in Melrose celebrated its grand opening in The Bronx last Friday, October 6th. The grocery store is located at 760 Melrose. The store’s manager says he understands the diversity of the neighborhood and if customers want specific items from the Caribbean he will get them in. [Bronx News 12]

Bronx-based Baldor Specialty Foods has joined the meal kit business. The wholesale food supplier launched a line of Veggie Kits under its private label of package food, Urban Roots. The kits, which don’t require a subscription, are fresh, plant-based, refrigerated meals that can be prepared in 15 minutes. Whole Foods, FreshDirect and Shoprite are among the retailers Baldor executives are in talks with to sell the meal kits for $8 each. However, the first line—meals based around cauliflower—are currently available at Jet.com. [New York Post]

Earlier this year a pilot program allowing SNAP users to purchase groceries online started. Now there is evidence that it’s already affecting how people food shop. PBS NewsHour reported that a new study by New York University shows “More people in poor neighborhoods purchased fresh produce when mobile markets used wireless banking machines to accept food stamps“. The study focused on The Bronx because it has the highest obesity rate in New York state.  [PBS NEWSHOUR]

However, members of the diaspora opt for local mom and pop take-out restaurants for a true taste of home when it comes to eating out.. Read More
