BY Dana Givens
New York has become one of the epicenters of the COVID-19, or
novel coronavirus, pandemic in America. Due to mandatory stay-at home
restrictions any business deemed "non-essential" has been closed down,
Restaurants have been especially hit hard, with many struggling to stay
afloat during the viral outbreak. One famous Harlem institutionis giving
back to the community with free meals to local residents. Normally the
restaurant host its popilar Gospel Brunch every Sunday which has since been
cancelled because of the pandemic. Instead the owner's decided to fill
in that time by distributing food and groceries to local Harlem residents.
The Harlem Resturant would be teaming up Rev. Al Sharpton's National
Action Network and CARES organization to launch a new community
initative called Sunday Supper.The new move would create a pantry where
residents can get bags of food items from Syvia's nationally distributed
food product line.
