NYC Tent City Serves ‘Culturally Appropriate Migrant…South American Dishes’


Hundreds of commuters and illegal aliens staying in New York’s pop-up tent city on Randall’s Island will be served ‘culturally appropriate’ meals, city officials say, as child hunger skyrockets in recent years years across the city.

During a tour of the tent city, which will be home to around 500 single male migrants arriving in buses sent from Texas and Arizona, New York City Emergency Management Commissioner Zach Iscol said said the meals would be “culturally appropriate”.

“The meals are all culturally appropriate – it’s South American cuisine,” Iscol said. “The menu rotates regularly.”

It comes as the latest report on child hunger in New York shows that 55% more children are hungry today than in previous years and 1 in 4 don’t know where their next meal will come from.

“Families in New York are grappling with soaring prices for food, rent and other necessities at a time when free school lunches will be more difficult to access,” said an executive at City Harvest, which reported the data, earlier this year.

In one month alone, City Harvest fed more than half a million New York children in its mobile pantries and soup kitchens – far more than the less than 340,000 children who received meals in February 2020, just before authorities shut down the state in response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

As Breitbart News reported, the tent city for migrants bused to the sanctuary’s jurisdiction will receive 24-hour snacks, coffee and tea, as well as Xbox game consoles, TVs, sofas , popcorn machines, foosball tables, board games, telephones for international calls and free WiFi.
