EDITORIAL: Improving welfare services

The New Taipei City free meal program for children is a good policy. Hopefully, it will not be just a one-year, or two-year political expedient strategy by Mayor Eric Chu (朱立倫).

At the very least, the program will need a regular budget from the local government; this will ensure that the impact of the program intensifies. If the central government works out a broader and longer-term scheme in collaboration with charities to help people who are starving, this will be beneficial to all Taiwanese.
