The New York City Department of Sanitation recently launched a new series on its Youtube channel. While it may come as a surprise to some, the show is about cooking and aims to provide tips for being more creative in the kitchen and making the best use of items people likely already have.
“No New Yorker should go hungry because of this crisis,” wrote the department on the first video of the series. “Feeding NYC is the City’s plan to feed hungry New Yorkers throughout the COVID-19 crisis and protect the security of our food supply chain led by NYC Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia.”

According to the description, the series appears to be inspired by the challenges that various supply chains are facing across the country. This has led to sporadic and temporary shortages on certain products, including various food items.
The post continued: “… [D]uring this time, we may be forced to think more creatively in the kitchen so we wanted to share some inspirational recipes from New York chefs to help get you started.
