Dear Friends,

As we continue to come together as a community to face the challenges of Covid-19, ensuring access to fresh food has become a major focus for non-profits and government agencies.

Senator Alessandra Biaggi's office has arranged for 750 meals of Korean BBQ Beef, Coconut Rice and Mixed Vegetables to be delivered to the Bayit for us to distribute around Riverdale to those in need. This is fresh food in single serve packages that should be consumed by Monday night.  They will be available in the Bayit driveway on Sunday morning, May 11th starting at 11:30am.  They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Food support helps in many ways. A family may have no current income and rely on food support and still need additional help for other basics like rent and utilities. Others have seen their income reduced, but face hard choices as their basic expenses outstrip their income. For those families food assistance frees up their limited resources for other basic necessities.  

 If you would like to pickup some meals for Sunday or Monday dinner please come to the Bayit driveway starting at 11:30am on Sunday. Please observe the following rules:

  • Wear a mask and wash your hands or wear gloves
  • Bring your own bag
  • Wait in line patiently 6 feet behind the person in front of you.
  • The line will form on the right hand side of the driveway. Please leave the left hand side clear for those who already picked up their meals to leave.
  • Please remember that this food is not the only source of assistance. NYC will be providing Kosher Grab N'go meals starting Monday morning at PS 24 (660 West 236th St.)
