Russ & Daughters Donating to Front-Line Workers and the Impoverished
The city still may be shut down, but that hasn’t deterred local appetizing anchor, Russ & Daughters.
The century-old Lower East Side institution continues to be an integral part of the history of New York City, now slinging bagels and rugelach to those in need, as well as to health care workers on the front lines of the pandemic.
Their Brooklyn bakery has been working around the clock, providing kosher sustenance for medical staff and the impoverished throughout the city. In so doing, they’ve partnered with The Imagine Society, joining in their #FoodforFearless campaign. Last week, Russ & Daughters delivered fifty boxed meals to Rego Park Senior Healthcare in Queens, and then took 50 more to the food pantry at Church of the Ascension on the Upper West Side. And it doesn’t appear that they’re slowing down.
Russ & Daughters also found significant support from King Arthur Flour’s #ForGoodnessBakes program, as well as from Jeannie and Jim Gaffigan.
All of the Russ & Daughters locations are currently closed to walk-ins, but there are a variety of delivery, pick-up, and shipping options available. Visit their website or find them on Instagram for more details.

Last week we received an email from @russanddaughters wanting to donate meals to our #FoodforFearless campaign and they more than delivered! First they safely prepared and packaged 100 bagged kosher meals consisting of a bagel & cream cheese, rugelach, and water at their Brooklyn location. Then they dropped off 50 meals to the brave staff on the #frontlines at @regoparkhealthcare in Queens. Big thanks to the Director of Recreation @adnan_rphc making us aware of this Retirement & Assisted Living Facility! Next @russanddaughters traveled to the Ascension Food Pantry in Morningside Heights to drop off the other 50 bagged meals. Here the meals were safely distributed to the pantry’s grateful clientele. We’re looking forward to continuing our relationship with the New York City institution #russanddaughters to deliver more meals to the #frontlines!
