Governor Greg Abbott has announced the 
Comfort Food Care Package (CFCP) program to provide meals for at-risk youth and families in communities across Texas as the state responds to COVID-19.  Participating restaurants offer CFCPs for patrons to purchase on behalf of families and youth in need.  Each care package contains enough food to feed a family of 5 to 6 and will be delivered to recipients’ homes.  The program is a partnership between the Governor’s Public Safety Office, the Texas network of Family and Youth Success Programs (formerly called Services to At-Risk Youth), Favor Delivery and the Texas Restaurant Association.

In a letter to the Mayor and City Manager,  Atmos Energy has indicated that they understand that the coronavirus outbreak may cause some customers to experience financial difficulty, whether because of illness, quarantine or a disruption at work.  Atmos Energy has temporarily suspended natural gas disconnections.
