Although the NYC public schools are closed, more than 400 schools will be providing three free meals a day for the city’s children.

On Monday, these locations began providing “grab and go” meals Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. No identification or registration is required, and all three meals can be picked up at the same time. Parents and guardians may pick up meals for their children.

New Yorkers can find a location near them on the NYC Public Schools website. They can also look at the menus for free breakfast and lunch.
