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 in 2021, we had served 10,000+ dinners and offered 750+ hours of Volunteer service.

In 2021, we served 49 meals: handing out over 12,300 meals and offered 850+ hours of Volunteer service.

Total of 20,500+ 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, March 27th, 2022, we have served 32 offerings: handing out over 4500+ dinners plus offered 1600+ hours of Volunteer service.

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

Total of 25,000+ meals at both sites!
