Oklahoma town eases pandemic, one restaurant meal at a time
(Zack's Cafe via AP)NEW YORK – In Miami, Oklahoma, restaurants and their customers are doing their part to ease pandemic heartache, one meal at a time. The idea of providing free, pre-paid meals spread from restaurant to restaurant a few months ago. Many recipients are homeless or have otherwise hit hard times since the pandemic rolled into Miami (pronounced my-AM-uh), population about 13,000.

The area’s plentiful casinos have reopened, and restaurants like The Dawg House have welcomed back in-person dining, with fewer tables to provide for social distancing.
