Pizza Meal Kits
All Meal Hubs began offering take home pizza meal kits. Take home pizza meal kits can be cooked at home using an oven, microwave, or toaster oven. Meal Hub patrons can pick up pizza alongside to grab-and-go meal offerings, and this option will continue to be available throughout the summer.
We now include sites that offer exclusively kosher certified meals. Free Kosher will be available to any New Yorker at locations in Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens. The sites are listed below and can also be found in the Meal Hub look up tool.
Kosher meals follow the USDA meal nutrition guidelines and are produced in partnership with a certified kosher distributor. Our kosher meal sites are housed in DOE school buildings and staffed by DOE food service staff. Meals offered at our kosher meal sites are free and available to any New Yorker that requests them.
