New York Governor Kathy Hochul Announces Restaurant Meals Program For Poor And Elderly

New York Governor Kathy Hochul has been proactively taking series of measures ever since she became the Governor. She recently announced a restaurant meal program to help the poor, disabled, and elderly as part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. She also announced a $25 million Restaurant Resiliency Program to support the restaurants in New York affected by the pandemic. It has been a tough time for bars and restaurants as the footfall has decreased due to the pandemic. Hochul’s programs aim to provide some relief to such restaurants. Furthermore, Hochul said, “It’s unconscionable that in a state as prosperous as New York, many residents still struggle to get enough food to feed their families.”

We Are Here To Support The New Yorkers, Says Kathy Hochul

Hochul assured everyone that just like the two restaurant programs, other programs would also come to support other New Yorkers affected by the pandemic. She said, “The vital actions we’re taking—establishing two restaurant programs to help the most vulnerable New Yorkers feed themselves and help restaurants recover from this terrible pandemic—will work in tandem to put food on the table in homes across the state. This pandemic continues to impact the wallets and homes of a vast number of New Yorkers, and we’re taking any and all actions to help them support themselves and their loved ones.”
