We've reached a milestone, and it's one that should make us simultaneously proud as New Yorkers that we stepped up for our fellow New Yorkers, but also sad because so many people have needed so much help. We've now reached a point where we've distributed 100 million meals for free to New Yorkers in need. That gives you a sense of just how big the challenge has been. We are going to continue this initiative for as long as we need to, because New Yorkers can never, ever, have to wonder where their next meal is coming from. That's not acceptable given the values of this city, the sense of fairness and compassion. We're going to be there for whoever needs food, always. But we need help. As the Congress is gathering in Washington to discuss the stimulus, here's another example -- provide stimulus funding so cities and states can provide food aid to people who need it. Make sure that all of the different ways that we get food to folks in need are funded fully. We can't have any New Yorker, any American, go without food in the midst of this crisis.
