São Paulo Governor João Dória announced a program offering free meals to homeless people for a month. The initiative will be launched on June 1 — also the date on which the state will begin to reopen its economy — and consists of expanding the Bom Prato (“Good meal”) program, created to provide affordable meals. 

For the next month, these meals will be made completely free in nearly 60 restaurants located throughout the state, in an effort to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus crisis on more vulnerable populations.
