Easter Treats TU

Thank you Verizon and CVS Pharmacy for the special Easter Treats

On Thursday, April 9, 2020, youth ages 18 and under received a special treat from the Easter Bunny sponsored by Verizon and CVS Pharmacy.  Each child who received a hot *FREE* meal as part of the citywide feeding program on Thursday from a NORD meal site, also received assorted Easter candy and chocolate bunny.  NORD offers free, hot meals to caregivers, parents, and grandparents of youth ages 18 and under from 4-6 PM at all rec centers except Annunciation Rec Center and (10) playgrounds across the city.  This is an easy option to provide an in-between meal or dinner for your youth while they are learning from home and sheltering in place.  Come by a NORD meal site today!  Click here for the full list of locations and times.
