Adams handed out food Tuesday at a senior center in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
He also went around the neighborhood and handed out masks.
Adams says social distancing enforcement should be left to community leaders, after seeing the video of an NYPD officer taking down a bystander during an arrest over the weekend.
He says he is working with community groups so they can educate others about social distancing in a positive way.
