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 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.
Meal pickup for the Crown Heights community is at two locations: PS 221 at 791 Empire Blvd, near Troy Avenue, and P.S. 289 – 900 St. Marks Ave, Brooklyn 11213. Meals will be available for children and families from 7:30-11:30 AM and 11:30-1:30 PM for adults.
The grab and go meals are available for all and are being provided by Borenstein Caterers under the brand name of “Regal-Glatt.” The Kashrus supervision is being provided by Volove Kashrus – Rabbi N.E. Teitelbaum of Congregation Nachlas Avos Volove.
A full list of sites can be seen at schools.nyc.gov/koshermeals. This list will be updated regularly as sites are added.
