70 million is the number of free meals distributed by New York City government since mid-March, when the COVID-19 pandemic took hold. We spoke to key individuals in the public and private sector teams that made this success happen: New York City Sanitation Commissioner and "Food Czar" Kathryn Garcia, and former NYC Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway, now of Unqork, the enterprise software company that developed an app virtually overnight.
