Mother’s Day $50 & Under: 9 Fun Gift Ideas Based On What She Says Most

mothers day foodie gifts ft

Our moms are everything to us—borderline superwomen. They’re walking encyclopedias of all the things that can kill you or make you go blind. They hold the Guinness World Record for most threats made with a single look. They push us to work hard even to do the impossible like shutting up and eating our food. They can even tell the future. It turns out no, life isn’t fair; yes, someone did end.. Read More

News Roundup: Longwood Eatery Burns Down, Zaro’s Parkchester Closes

zaros bakery parkchester

Milly’s Corner on Longwood Ave burned down on New Year’s Day. The Hunts Point restaurant has only been open for a year and did not have anyone in it at the time of the fire, which also spread to a neighboring building. [News 12]

Zaro’s Bakery closed the doors of its Parkchester location for good on December 28, 2015 after 56 years. Zaro’s says the landlord refused to renew their lease only weeks before, though the landlord denies this claim. And no one has confirmed whether the rumors of Zaro’s replacement by larger food chain Boston Market is true. Zaro’s has several other locations around New York City. [Welcome2TheBronx]

A lot of families rely on the kindness of the community and others to get through the holidays. Baldor Speciality Foods in Hunts Point provided 500 family meal kits to feed over 2,000 people last month in their section of The Bronx where many live below or barely above the poverty line. [The Produce News]

People weren’t the only ones benefiting from the kindness of the community this past holiday season. The Animal Care Centers of New York City’s Community Dogs Program set up a Fordham food pantry just before Christmas to feed four-legged family members. It’s now open 7 days a week. [News 12]
