On Sundays, NAN is starting to distribute CARE Packages from a second location in Harlem, outside of Sylvia’s on 318 Malcolm X Blvd at 126th Street. The bags will include meals and pantry items from Sylvia’s nationally distributed food product line.

The National Action Network has been giving out food six days a week since the middle of March 2020.

Rev. Al Sharpton was on hand for the meal distribution.
