Covid-19 hit New York and the hospitality industry shut down. For us at Great Performances, it meant the cancellation of every party and special event. Our kitchen, recently relocated to the South Bronx, went dark.
Within days, we fired up our ovens, answering the City’s call to provide thousands of daily meals for elderly and food insecure New Yorkers. Service staff who once butlered hors d’oeuvres at black tie galas now delivered meal packages to the doors of housebound seniors.
We are grateful to our teams who worked daily for months to care for our neighbors despite the risks.
Over the past 40 years, we’ve answered the call to serve our city during times of crises without hesitation.
It’s in our DNA; there is hope and love in every meal.
