Children under 18 can get free lunch at a variety of locations

The dates and locations of the West New York Division of Recreation’s 2022 Summer Food Program have been announced by Mayor Gabriel Rodriguez, Commissioner Cosmo Cirillo, and the town’s Board of Commissioners.

Each year, the town serves free lunch to children after the school year ends at places around town. In 2022, West New York has expanded the program to feature more serving sites.
