A Day in the Life of a Bronx Essential Worker

Video by Francely Flores 

Lucio Sanchez, 43, has worked in the Hunts Point Market located in the Bronx since 2002 as a helper, food distributor and delivery truck driver. He delivers fruits, vegetables and frozen foods to delis, restaurants, supermarkets and schools across New York City and Yonkers. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, essential workers continued to work in person while non-essential workers were ordered to follow a statewide stay-at-home order. 

In this video, Lucio shares what his experience has been working in the Hunts Point Market and the changes that have occurred as a result of COVID-19.
