Queensboro Free Meals Promotion, & Tuesday's Family Meal!
Good morning and happy Tuesday! Are you doing ok? We certainly hope so! We're very pleased to announce that we have partnered with High Road Kitchens on their program to bring free meals to people who need them, and we're extra excited because it allows you to help make these meals available! This program is designed to help people who are currently experiencing financial difficulties, for whatever reason, no questions asked. This week, besides our regular family meals, we will be offering single portion versions of a meal available for $0 to any of the above folks who need it, while supplies last. There will be two other options - one for $10 so you can get one for yourself, and if you pay $20 you'll get one meal and subsidize someone else to get one for free! Pretty cool, right? This is part of our efforts to help bring good, low-cost food to those who need it, and it goes back to when Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez was at The Q in May 2019 advocating for the fine folks of One Fair Wage, who are working with High Road Kitchens on this program.
It all comes full circle, doesn't it? So that's some of what we've been up to, let's take a look at today's family meal! Today's Family Meal - Fish, and Fish!
For today's meal you'll have the choice of swordfish or tuna - both fresh, locally and sustainably caught, and very very tasty!
