“For families that need food, and as this crisis unfortunately deepens again, and the federal support hasn’t come, the stimulus hasn’t come, a lot of families need those grab and go meals from our schools, they will be provided continually at our schools, even as schools are closed for a period of time, the food service folks – I want to thank the food service workers who are doing amazing work – they will continue to provide food for families who need them, and that will be free, of course, so that will continue, and as the Chancellor always says, all children are learning today and we’ll continue to learn in this all remote phase, and we will continue to do this work to get our schools back as quickly as possible,” said the Mayor.
