Community Meals



In May, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic plus local food insecurity & unemployment, we resumed our Weekly Community Meal in Central Harlem.

In 2020, we served 31 meals: handing out over 4700 dinners plus offering 400+ hours of Volunteer service.

Wednesday, May 19, 2021, was our 1 year Anniversary.  As of that date, we have served 5300+ dinners and offered 350+ hours of Volunteer service.

For a total of 10,000+ meals in Harlem!

Beginning in October, 2020, Mandala Café began to collaborate with Kehilat Romemu, a Renewal Judaism Synagogue on the UWS to provide a twice monthly meal.

As of Sunday, July 11th 25, 2021, we have served 17 offerings: handing out over 2000 dinners plus offered 400+ hours of Volunteer service.

We also provide meals for the Ujamaa Community Fridge & the Ascension Shelter in the neighborhood.

A total of 14,000+ meals at both sites!


Next Sunday Community Meal: August 8
