Vegan restaurant Modern Love propelled a network program to help feed New Yorkers encountering monetary hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Modern Love Community Meals program is a compassionate exertion made in partnership with vegan hunger-relief group Chilis on Wheels that will serve 100 vegan suppers each Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in May.
Popular cookbook writer Isa Chandra Moskowitz opened the first location of Modern Love in meat-driven Omaha, NE in 2014. “Even though it is not time to open, it is time to help,” Moskowitz said in a statement to vegnews.
“We created Modern Love Community Meals because we want to get our kitchen back to work safely and fill a need for vegan food at the same time.”
Chilis on Wheels will give out free suppers in the Bushwick, Brownsville, and Bed Stuy neighborhoods on Fridays and will serve the general public at Tompkins Square Park on Saturdays.
On Thursdays, clients can pre-request limited $2 dinners and get them at Modern Love—which is as yet shut to the overall population—in Williamsburg. The menu changes every day and offers dishes, for example, Mac and Shews, Chickpea Cutlets and Gravy, and burrito bowls.
Moskowitz is likewise propelling a pay-what-you-can network “cookzine” in the coming period to help subsidize the new venture.
