The federal government sanctioned a law on Wednesday to determine that food purchased as school lunches must be distributed to the parents of children and adolescents who are unable to receive these meals due to Covid-19-related lockdown measures. Similar moves have already been adopted in the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, with both state governments also distributing basic food baskets to the needy population.
