Bronx News Roundup, Nov. 24

City Harvest fulfilled its annual Thanksgiving tradition of handing out fresh fruits and veggies to hundreds of needy families in the Bronx yesterday.

City Harvest also revealed in this Daily News article that the number of Bronxites lining up at soup kitchens continues to increase.

In addition to our coverage of the City Council's living wage debate at the Kingsbridge Armory, The Daily News reports that negotiations may be collapsing.

The NY Times continues their "Neediest Cases" profiling with this article about a woman who is the product of the Bronx foster care system and is now devoted to raising a child of her own.

The President of the United Homeless Organization, a formerly homeless Bronx man named Stephen Riley, and the organization's director, Myra Walker, are at the center of the controversy surrounding the non-profit's exposure as a scam.

Preparing Thanksgiving dinner will be a challenge, if not impossible, for residents of a University Heights building that was damaged last summer and still has not been completely repaired.
