This year, Thanksgiving shoppers are to expect a shortage in groceries and higher prices for food this Holiday season.
According to multiple news sources such as The New York Times & Today, experts say that the Coronavirus pandemic has shorted food supply chains. Supermarkets have reported that their suppliers can only fill 50% - 70% of orders. The scarcity will mean that average prices for your most favorite holiday meals, such as Turkey, will increase.
Though this prompted shoppers to begin looking for their menu items early, there are some still looking for their last minute meals. Fortunately, the Bronx and NYC have many places where you can donate food and/or your time this year.
Here’s six places where you can volunteer and donate for this Thanksgiving.
