New York City will continue to distribute its “Grab & Go” meals at public schools throughout the summer, even as the city continues to progress in the phases of reopening, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Food Czar Kathryn Garcia announced Tuesday.
As the coronavirus pandemic has caused severe financial distress to many New Yorkers, the city Department of Education has been distributing three free meals every day at public schools to New Yorkers of all ages, with some specially designated kosher sites.
The city has distributed approximately 70 million meals since March, through its Grab & Go program as well as home-delivered meals to seniors unable to obtain food on their own.
“This has been an unprecedented effort,” de Blasio said at a press conference Tuesday, a day after the city entered Phase 2 of the reopening process, “and … we will not let anyone go hungry this summer.”
People of any age can pick up three daily meals at once, with no registration, income check or ID required. Parents and guardians may pick up meals for their children. Meals will be available for children and families from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and for adults from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
