Even though it is not time to open, it is time to help.

Those are the words of Isa Chandra Moskowitz who founded the plant based restaurant Modern Love Brooklyn in Williamsburg. When the pandemic hit she created Modern Love Community, meals serving hundreds of vegan meals to help her neighbors who are struggling financially.

"We saw it as an opportunity to bring in some of our staff who had lost their jobs and get them working again" Moskowitz said.



Each meal costs $2. They are served on Thursdays. You can sign up on Wednesday nights.

"We have been able to work with other community groups who are working towards the same goal of getting delicious, amazing, nutritious food to people who need it and want it" Moskowitz continued. "We are able to feed our old customers who may have lost their jobs. We're able to feed new customers who just want that swanky vegan comfort food."

Isa has also partnered with the vegan relief organization Chilis on Wheels and they are serving meals on Fridays and Saturdays.
