City offering free grab-and-go meals to New Yorkers in need this summer

This summer, the Department of Education will continue to offer free grab-and-go meals to all New Yorkers. (The program started up again on June 28.) 

Per the Summer Meals website
• No registration, documentation or ID is required to receive a free breakfast or lunch
• Multiple meals can be picked up at once 
Breakfast and lunch service times are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (click links to view menus) 
• Vegetarian meals are available at all locations 
• All meals are grab and go, not to be consumed on-site

Local schools offering grab-and-go meals include:
• P.S. 20, 166 Essex St. at East Houston
• East Side Community School, 420 E. 12th St. between Avenue B and Avenue C
• The STAR Academy/P.S. 63, 121 E. Third St. between Avenue A and First Avenue
• P.S. 64, 600 E. Sixth St. at Avenue B

Visit this link for the full list of meal locations. This link has a map of all free meal programs in the city. 

The city launched the community-meal program in April 2020 during the early days of the pandemic. Gothamist reported that, to date, the DOE has distributed more than 130 million grab-and-go meals since then.
