The NYU Courtesy Meals program resulted from the work of the Food Insecurity Work Group, which included administrators, faculty, and students, and met for one year starting in the Summer 2016. The Courtesy Meals pilot program began in Fall 2016.
The goal of the NYU Courtesy Meals program is to provide short-term assistance for students facing food insecurity for any reason.
