DreamYard, a community arts center in the South Bronx, has adapted its relationship to the community in this time of crisis, opening its doors on weekdays to provide free lunches. According to Hyperallergic:
"DreamYard is keeping its front doors open a few hours each weekday, by acting as a distribution point for free lunches provided by World Central Kitchen (founded by chef José Andrés) between 1:30 and 3pm. In other words, its volunteers and employees have not suspended their commitment to serving their communities, but instead have pivoted to find other ways to fulfill their mission while all our social and economic systems contract under the pressure of the coronavirus outbreak."
