City officials joined with L+M Development Partners, Jonathan Rose Companies, Union Settlement and Acacia Network to announce a new initiative through which over a dozen East Harlem restaurants – all struggling to survive in the COVID-19 outbreak – are providing at least 360 meals per day to workers at Metropolitan Hospital in East Harlem.
A total of 20 local restaurants and delis will be participating. The meal will be provided seven days per week until the crisis subsides.
“L+M Development Partners is committed to supporting the communities where we work and proud to provide funding for this initiative,” said Ron Moelis, L+M’s CEO. “We care deeply about East Harlem, and saw this as a critical opportunity to assist the dedicated hospital workers who are working so hard to keep everyone safe, while at the same time the helping local East Harlem businesses that are struggling to survive.”
