Every day at restaurants across the city, the kitchen puts up a meal for staff: Family Meal. Although we try to keep it varied and healthy, our staff will be the first to say cooks tend to lean hard on carbs and cheese. But I know we are already all missing these brief moments of breaking bread together.
As devastating as this shutdown is for the entire hospitality industry, there is a group of people at risk of going hungry in the short term: those who rely on food banks and community kitchens every week. So while we cannot feed our work family during this shutdown, we can feed our extended Greenpoint family. Se we are announcing Family Meal To Go.
Family Meal is our effort to kill two birds with one stone, cook those birds, feed you those birds and maybe some vegetables too, pay some staff, and help some good people feed our most vulnerable neighbors. Meal kits will be packed for two with some assembly and the ability to turn on your stove may be required.
100% of the profits will go to support ReThink Food NYC who are supporting the most vulnerable and isolated in our communities, so please be as generous as you are able! Feel free to donate to them directly, also, at www.rethinkfood.nyc.
We will be accepting and confirming orders via email at firstname.lastname@example.org until we sell out. Pickup will be WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18th from 5pm until 8pm.
Until the sun comes out and we can gather together around a table, keep safe.
