The National Action Network, and World Central Kitchen, are partnering to deliver meals to needy New Yorkers and New Jerseyans.

In the wake of the unprecedented emergency impacting the country due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), Rev. Al Sharpton and National Action Network (NAN) partnered with World Central Kitchen to deliver thousands of hot and cold meals daily to those in need at NAN’s Harlem headquarters “The House of Justice” and at NAN Newark Tech World in Newark, New Jersey. In New Jersey, the New Jersey Reentry Corporation is a partner with World Central Kitchen and NAN is providing food to seniors, reentry program participants, housing authority residents, and persons in need.

“With the traditional safety nets like school feeding programs, childcare services, and senior centers closing, many in our communities will not to be able to provide for their families,” said Reverend Al Sharpton. “Our partnership with World Central Kitchen is to ensure our community that we are here for them. In times of stress and struggle, we all need to support one another.”

Families will also be able to take advantage of LyftUp, Lyft’s comprehensive effort to expand transportation access to those who need it most.
