Biden moving forward with additional food assistance ahead of stimulus

In an executive order signed Tuesday, Biden directed the Federal Emergency Management Agency to cover 100% of the cost to states and localities so they can partner with restaurants and nonprofits to prepare meals for soup kitchens and food pantries to distribute.

The order essentially made the bipartisan FEED Act a reality without a Congressional vote. The proposal, which was originally part of the Biden administration’s $1.9 trillion emergency relief proposal, is a win-win that allows restaurants to stay open and pay employees to prepare meals for the needy.
