Many are excited to sign up for new food delivery pilot program but are having issues enrolling on 311. One told me they can only register online though they don't own a computer. In desperate times we must remove barriers to food access. Hope this can be resolved.

Thank you to for spotlighting the hypocrisy in the defense of this racist statement. With anti-Asian attacks on the rise across the country, we need to call out racism wherever we see it.
