New Orleans residents impacted financially by the coronavirus can still get free meals for another month after FEMA approved a 30-day extension for the city’s COVID-19 Meal Assistance Program. The free meal program delivers twice daily, local restaurant-made meals to thousands of residents in need. The meals will now be available to eligible recipients through September 4.
Already enrolled residents will continue to receive meals, and residents who may be newly in need of meal assistance are encouraged to apply, as there is still significant capacity in this program. Any individuals who may be in need of food should apply online or call 3-1-1 (504-658-2299) to see if they qualify.
