A grab-and-go station has been set up at Indigo Patchogue restaurant in partnership with the Equity First Foundation and Chefs Douglas and Scott Mase to give out food to those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. until Sunday, March 22, the goal is to hand out at least 1,000 meals each day to families in need.
According to their Eventbrite, you can either walk into the restaurant to pick up your meals or receive the meals curbside in which a person can call the number on the sign, and have someone bring meals right to your car.
Rhonda Klch, the executive director of the Equity First Foundation, a non-profit that provides financial education and literacy, said they are taking precautions and following guidelines set by the state to ensure it is safe to enter in the restaurant.
“We only allow 10 people at a time [in the restaurant]” said Klch. “It is a quick process with people in and out in minutes because it is already packaged and ready to go.”
The foundation is still looking to for volunteers to sponsor these grab-and-go sessions.
