A new poll finds the city still has the hungriest congressional districts in the nation.
Following a trend discovered a year ago, New Yorkers in seven of 13 New York districts were unable to afford enough food last year, according to a new Gallup and Food Research and Action Center survey.
The poll says one in three South Bronx residents could not afford enough food, giving the neighborhood the highest rate of food hardship in the nation.
The survey involved more than a half-million households over the past year.
