Free Thanksgiving Dinners from DOE Available!
The holidays are approaching and many New Yorkers continue to struggle with unemployment, food insecurity, and the impact of COVID-19.
We are thankful that the Office of Food & Nutrition Services has announced that it will be serving Thanksgiving dinners to go (frozen to cook at home) will be served on 11/23, 11/24, and 11/25 for pickup from 9am12pm and 3pm-5pm.
Thanks to the team at OFNS—Chris, Stephen, Armando, Nicole and Tracy— and the Chancellor, for ensuring our families are fed!
