NEW ORLEANS — Today, the City of New Orleans announced the commencement of its COVID-19 meal assistance program, which will engage local restaurants to provide much needed food to eligible New Orleanians experiencing food insecurity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We know that because of COVID-19, many of our residents are unable to put food on their tables,” said Mayor LaToya Cantrell. “Local non-profit organizations have stood up in unprecedented ways to provide our people with food these last few months, and I am so grateful to them. But the need continues. That’s why we’ve partnered with FEMA and Revolution Foods to build this first-of-its-kind emergency meal program, which will help fill that gap.”
