Governor Kathy Hochul recently expanded SNAP benefits for New Yorker’s to include restaurants and prepared meals.
The participation of restaurants still needs to be approved by the federal government, but it will finally give populations like seniors or people with disabilities a greater opportunity to get hot food delivered.
Isaacs Center president Greg Morris said this commitment is substantial to people with food insecurity and does a lot to help with their hunger.
He also believes more can be done.
Aside from delivering meals to people’s homes, Isaacs Center and other human service organizations think human interaction should be a priority as well.
