The city is working with local restaurants to provide two meals a day for 30 days to eligible residents in need who are impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
City leaders say that residents who are eligible include high-risk health adults, residents with special medical needs, homeless residents, homebound seniors, and families with children 18 and under.
Due to FEMA rules, residents currently participating in SNAP, Meals on Wheels, NOLA Public School Meal Program, and State-sponsored homeless hotel services are unable to participate in the program.
Eligible residents looking to apply for the program can call 311 or go to nola.gov/311.
