NYC has been providing three “Grab and Go” meals a day for all children under the age of 19 for many weeks now. However, according to NYC “all” does not appear to include children who keep kosher.
NYC is in the midst of a health and economic crisis. Families who keep kosher are struggling alongside the rest of NYC. Yet NYC leadership has not yet provided meals for the children in these families.
Please share this email with all your families and urge them to email Mayor DeBlasio and tell him that children who keep kosher also deserve to eat in times of crisis.
