Coronavirus in NY: How hungry residents can get free meals daily
Any hungry New Yorker in need due to the coronavirus pandemic can now get three free meals daily at 435 public school sites throughout the Big Apple.
The grab-and-go food sites had been open to students and their families, but opened to all adults on Friday. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be picked up at the same time.
Adults with children can continue to pick the free meals from 7:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Adults without children are being offered the free meals from 11:30 a.m.- 1:30 p.m.
“We know people are hurting,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said when announcing the plan that went into effect Friday morning.
“We don’t want anyone to go hungry in the city, so there’s 435 places … not just for kids, but for adults as well… Everyone who’s hungry has a place to go to get food.”
