Meal Location Tool


Posted By on Mar 23, 2020

Hello Parents and Guardians,

The NYCDOE has created a tool to help you find places around your area to pick up “Grab and Go” meals for your kids. No registration, ID, or documentation will be required, and all three meals may be picked up at the same time. Parents and Guardians may pick up meals for their children if they please.

I recommend you bookmark the site or share it with other friends and family when you get the change.

Thank you!!

Good Evening,

As announced this evening in a press conference, the Mayor has closed all NYCDOE schools due to the COVID 19 virus until April 20th. I am learning of this like many of you through the press conference and the information provided on the NYCDOE website. Below I will include the guidance that the DOE has provided and will continue to update our community of the latest news when I become aware.

The best way we can care for each other right now is to practice socially distancing. We are all concerned about those members of our community who are most dependent on our schools for support and services, and we are working diligently to obtain information about how we can best support our community members.

Also, because the city’s guidance is changing minute to minute, please stay tuned for any developments. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any question.

Please be well,

Paul Jonathan Thompson

Founding Principal

Urban Assembly School of Music and Art
