Driven by Red Rabbit’s mission to provide high-quality food to underrepresented groups in the community, Red Rabbit has partnered with Chef José Andrés’ charity, World Central Kitchen, during this outbreak to prepare meals for older adults living in Harlem, Washington Heights, Washington Heights and Downtown Manhattan. Red Rabbit’s fifteen years of experience producing large quantities of fresh, made-from-scratch food at a cost-effective price-point made them an ideal partner for World Central Kitchen.
Student Meal Programs & Food Education
Red Rabbit is unparalleled in their standard for the level of food quality and variety that kids receive, at prices below the federal reimbursement rate. Each component of a meal prepared by Red Rabbit is made-from-scratch – everything from the salad dressing to the muffins – and made fresh daily in Red Rabbit’s Harlem kitchen. Favorite menu items offered through Red Rabbit meal programs include cauliflower mac & cheese, al pastor tacos and pesto chicken. In tandem with providing quality food to students, Red Rabbit’s Education Programs aim to cultivate confidence and curiosity when interacting with ingredients in a hands-on learning environment that helps foster healthy relationships with food.
