Rev. Al Sharpton and National Action Network (NAN) are partnering with World Central Kitchen to deliver 500 hot and cold meals daily to those in need during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
“With the traditional safety nets like school feeding programs, childcare services, and senior centers closing, many in the Harlem community will not to be able to provide for their families,” said Sharpton. “Our partnership with World Central Kitchen is to ensure our community that we are here for them. In times of stress and struggle, we all need to support one another.”
World Central Kitchen, through its #ChefsForAmerica response to the current crisis, is taking action with a multi-pronged approach. The organization is already distributing thousands of individually packaged grab-and-go meals to local families in NYC and other cities.
Beginning Saturday, March 21 at 11 a.m., 500 hot and cold meals will be served at NAN Headquarters in Harlem. Meals will then be served every Monday through Saturday from noon until meals are distributed.
NAN Headquarters is located at 106 West 145th Street (At Malcolm X Blvd.).
