New Orleans Will Enter Phase 3 Saturday, Bars Reopen For To-Go Drinks

Torri Donley

New Orleans will enter Phase 3 of reopening on Saturday, Oct. 3, Mayor LaToya Cantrell announced Thursday at a press conference.

“With all of these phases the city of New Orleans has taken a slightly different approach than the state of Louisiana and we will continue on that path,” Cantrell said.

The new guidelines will be adopted in three mini-stages, with additional rollbacks considered every two to three weeks based on the city’s health data. The city is taking a more gradual approach than the state, which entered its version of Phase 3 on Sept. 11.

Cantrell said that by dividing Phase 3 into three parts, the city will provide businesses and residents with “more of a roadmap or milestones.”

In Phase 3.1, which starts at 6 a.m. Saturday, restaurants will be allowed to operate at 75 percent indoor capacity and 100 percent outdoor capacity. Social distancing and face coverings

Trump’s letter gives New Hampshire food pantries something to chew on

Torri Donley

Published: 10/3/2020 9:24:14 PM

Like many similar organizations across the country, the New Hampshire Food Bank has received boxes of food from the U.S Department of Agriculture that contain a letter with President Donald Trump’s signature.

“As part of our response to coronavirus, I prioritized sending nutritious food from our farmers to families in need throughout America,” the letter says.

The letter has been criticized by many food bank directors for politicizing a service for families in need, just weeks before the 2020 presidential election. The letter, written in both English and Spanish, touts the president’s dedication to the safety of Americans.

“We were quite taken aback,” said Nancy Mellitt, the director of development for the New Hampshire Food Bank.

Last week, the USDA mandated that all packages in the Farmers to Families Food Box Program include the letter from Trump. The program, which supplies boxes of fresh fruits, vegetables,

The Best Way to Cook Meat, According to These Argentine Chefs

Torri Donley

I wish I had an asado gang the way I have two book groups and a hiking pod. In Argentina, this meat-centric cookout is a similar kind of social club, except with committed carnivores. Argentines eat the most beef in the world—close to 155 pounds per person per year. And when gauging serving sizes, they plan on a good pound of meat for each guest.

Earlier this year I visited South America in search of this traditional culinary potlatch. I learned about its components, from the asador (or griller) and bright salads of tender greens and charred vegetables, plus roasted potatoes or papas fritas to vinegary accompaniments like chimichurri and salsa criolla.

Quantities of Argentina’s emblematic Malbec are a near necessity to fuel hours of drinking and talking and strolling back and forth to the parrilla, an open coal-fed fire, as a

A roundup of state government and Capitol news items of interest:

MIXED-DRINK RULES: Officials with the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division announced Thursday that administrative rules to address the filling, sealing and sale of mixed drinks or cocktails to-go have been filed and are now effective.

On June 29, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed into law House File 2540, which legalized the sale of mixed drinks or cocktails to-go by certain liquor license holders.

The legislation also authorized state regulators to adopt emergency administrative rules to implement the provisions of law related to mixed drinks or cocktails sold to-go. The rules prohibit the sale of mixed drinks or cocktails to-go in paper or Styrofoam cups, or plastic cups that are intended for one-time use. Lids with straw holes or sipping holes are also prohibited.

Containers of mixed drinks or cocktails to-go also must bear a seal that makes it apparent when that

Mall owners see a ray of hope as food courts, restaurants to open from October 5

Struggling to bring back customers, mall owners have pinned hopes on the Maharashtra government’s decision to allow food courts and restaurants to reopen from October 5 after a gap of almost six months.

Restaurants, bars, food courts and hotels are among the hardest hit sections of the economy as restrictions on travel and movement to curb the spread of the coronavirus have kept people away.

In the fifth phase of the rolling back of lockdown restrictions, the government has allowed restaurants, bars and food courts to open from October 5 but with a caveat. They will have to operate at 50 percent capacity, according to the ‘Mission Begin Again’ guidelines issued by the state government on September 30.

“Restaurants prove to be a perfect option for customers to grab a bite or

Food Systems and Building Back Better – Positioning Paper – World

Ebata, Ayako – Nisbett, Nicholas – Gillespie, Stuart

Measures that have been put in place across the world to slow down the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) have had profound effects on food and nutrition security for those furthest behind.

In the short run, many have experienced increased commodity prices, decreased access to food through schools and markets, disrupted agri-food supply chains, and loss of livelihoods. It is feared that these short-term effects will have a long-term impact on poverty, intergenerational malnutrition among vulnerable people (in particular, pregnant and lactating women), agricultural productivity reduction, and increased conflicts and displacement. How can we build back food systems better after Covid-19 so that they serve the needs of those furthest behind?

To guide this decision, we employ the following concept of food systems resilience: ‘Capacity over time of a food system and its units at multiple levels, to provide sufficient, appropriate and accessible
