A controversial contractor being paid millions by the Big Apple to handle migrant services is tossing away tens of thousands of uneaten meals prepared for migrants — including 5,000 on a single day, company records show.
DocGo, which was awarded a hefty $432 million no-bid contract by Mayor Adams’ administration to help relocate some migrants upstate, receives up to $33 per day to provide three meals for each of the 4,000 asylum seekers in its care, the New York Times reported.
A significant number of those meals, however, are being trashed — with more than 70,000 being “wasted” between October 22 and November 22, according to the internal records obtained by the outlet.
More than 5,000 meals for asylum seekers were thrown out on November 6 alone, the records show.
DocGo — the COVID testing-turned-migrant-shelter firm — charges the city $11 per meal, which is the maximum allowed under its contract.
