He says the event is open to anyone, but safety is a priority. People are allowed into the area only a few at a time to maintain space, and no children are allowed for safety reasons. He says they’ve been doing this since March and plan to continue as long as they can.
"We're giving them all nutritious stuff everything's healthy these are hard times for all of us we're trying to make the best out of it and hopefully it'll come to an end as soon as possible so kids can go back to school,” says Meir Zanziper, owner of Bon Appetite.
They plan to be back on Monday at 10 a.m. on East 15th Street between Avenue O and Avenue P. He says they’ll continue providing these meals for as long as they can.
