By Robert Press
On Friday, September 10th, Phipps Neighborhoods and P.S. 110 hosted a Back to School Homecoming event at their campus, located at 580 Crotona Park South in the Bronx. Fun was had by all, with food support packages from FoodStream Network, games and music, as well as backpack and uniforms giveaways.
"Phipps Neighborhoods is so grateful to have FoodStream help connect families to fresh produce. Just like backpacks and uniforms, nourishing food is an important part of gearing up for back to school, especially this year," said Allison Marino, Director of External Relations at Phipps Neighborhoods & Lead Convener of Bronx Impact, CD6. "FoodStream's network brought us an amazing partnership with The Legacy Center that helped us send 200 families back to school with ingredients for healthy meals. We are excited about the new opportunities the platform will help us make possible for our community!"
Other partners that joined in on the back to school fun included the New York Public Library, Rethink Food, Spreading The Love Worldwide, Osbourne and Frankie's Carnival.
