New York is the biggest collection of villages in the world. -Alistair Cooke
We continue to thank all who have made this possible, especially the NYC Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and the Film Food Festival, our corporate sponsors, and our indiegogo fundraiser contributors from around the world. Hot sandwiches, burgers, soup, coffee, rice bowls, tacos, and even sweets are on the menu today for the thousands of people still putting their lives back in order after Super Storm Sandy changed everything. To date, we’ve served over 260,000 hot meals and have plenty more to give out to our neighbors hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy. Let’s go.
Today, the following food trucks will be in:
Bian Dang: 87-15 rockaway beach blvd( between beach 87th and 88th)
Milk Truck: St. Francis de Sales: Rockaway Beach Boulevard at Beach 129th Street, Belle Harbor
Rickshaw Dumplings: Christ Community Church: Rockaway Point Boulevard and 208st, Breezy Point
Toum: St. Francis de Sales: Rockaway Beach Boulevard at Beach 129th Street, Belle Harbor
Note: Sometimes the trucks have to change locations. Please click their name on this page, follow @NYCFoodTruck on Twitter (and say hi!), or subscribe to this Twitter List for the most up-to-date details on all Outreach Relief trucks.
If you’re in need of help or want to volunteer:
We’ve also heard amazing requests from you on how much you want to help donate your time or resources to the effort. We’re humbled by the caring and concern of the NYC community for those in need, but also understand from our partners that there’s more to an organized relief effort than donation of time and supplies. We’d encourage those that want to lend a hand to look into the below groups and work with existing organizations to have the greatest impact.
