NEW YORK (WABC) -- On Saturday, Mayor Bill de Blasio is touring the Kingsbridge Armory, which is being used as a temporary food distribution center during the COVID-19 crisis.

TLC licensed drivers pick up meals from the facility to deliver to New Yorkers in need.

Families that sign up through this portal can register for a box with two days worth of food and have them delivered by TLC-registered taxi drivers.

Earlier this week, the mayor discussed in detail the need for food security, announcing a $170 million imitative to feed every New Yorker during the pandemic.
