NYC Brings Food Trucks to Kids

August 18th, 2014   admin   Food



Thumbs up to the New York City Department of Education for this one! This summer meals program, which started a couple of years ago, is a program that is meant to give kids that get free or reduced lunch during the academic school year the same benefits in the summer. The food truck this year is in 4 locations all across NYC – one at Orchard Beach in the Bronx and 3 in Queens near parks and libraries.  Eric Goldstein, CEO of the department’s Office of School Support Services says “By bringing the food to them we’re able to extend our reach in ways that previously were unattainable.” The food trucks are white and colorful with words that promote free meals in bright colors and a number for people to call and find out where the closest food truck is to them.
