The individually wrapped meals are made and delivered by Barbalu (www.barbalu.com), a family-owned restaurant near the South Street Seaport. Co-owners Adriana Luque and Stefano Barbagallo, are no strangers to overcoming adversity. Their restaurant was completely destroyed during Hurricane Sandy but they chose to rebuild after the storm and were just getting back on their feet before the pandemic hit. By donating meals to the health care workers you will also help to support this small NYC business.
The more money we raise, the more days we are able to provide meals and the more hospitals we are able to serve. Thank you for any donation you can make!
