Putting this in this forum - if it's the wrong one, my apologies :-)

Some of the public schools in NYC have been giving out kosher meals for free since the Spring, but the schedule and locations have now changed since the public schools are reopening.

Pick up times are now post public school hours only, and only when school is open. There are a lot less sites open, too.

Details at the link below - hope this helps -

If any of you go, can you tell us what they are giving on the new schedule? Thanks!

There’s a huge Jewish neighborhood there.
I guess they’re switching it around to make it accessible to that end of town now .

I thought this is a thread where we can write our recommendations for changes to the free kosher meals. I’ll take the liberty to do that anyway.
PLEASE CUT THE MILK NEXT TIME! We host humans, not cows. Unless if there’s plasma or any other anti corona miracle remedy in the milk we don’t need 7 bottles a day. Thank you.

Guidelines are for milk to be served 3 meals a day. Schools must adhere in order to keep getting the funding. Wht dont you give the extra milk to neighbors? I live in a big building. Approx 10 people get milk and free meals. The other 40, including myself, are buying milk this whole time. We could use the milk..

Yes you do. School-age children are supposed to drink at least three 8-ounce cups of milk a day, every day. It wouldn't hurt adults to have that much, either.

What I don't understand is why they give out 2% milk when national nutritional guidelines are skim milk for everyone over the age of 2.

I can’t believe anyone in the tristate area needed to buy milk all this time.
So many people have a 5 year stock of milk in the freezer which they’d be so happy to share. My neighbors keep begging me to take from them but I only take 1 if they take 3 of mine in exchange.

Did anyone go today? What did they give on the new schedule? Is it still breakfast and lunch, or just one meal?

I went to the one in Flatbush. The line was long so the two hours were not enough. And they wanted to close before everyone in the line got their food. Not sure what happened in the end. But they did give regular breakfast and lunch, take as much as you need.
Breakfast today was cereal and milk and yogurt.
Lunch was egg salad, a small roll, milk, some tomatoes and an apple.
I think that is it. So the usual. Probably rotating like they did until now.
Also note that other public schools will be giving out food between 9-12 that may have OU or OU-D products in them. Check the site for more info if you eat these products https://www.schools.nyc.gov/sc.....meals .
