Free Summer Meals Program Begins

On July 2 the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) and New York City Department of Education announced that the Summer Meals Program will run until August 28. The Summer Meals Program provides free breakfast and lunch to New York City students 18 and younger with the goal of "[reaching] the City's youngsters and [providing] them with nutritious meals as we do during the school year," according to Chief Executive of School Support Services Eric Goldstein.
