American singer John Bon Jovi offers support to workers affected by the closure and invites them to their free afternoon restaurant.
Closing in the US has been going on for a month. 800,000 civil servants are not paid. To make this difficult moment bearable, rock star John Bon Jovi invited employees and families to have dinner at his restaurant.
On Monday (local time), they were able to feed for free at JBJ Soul Kitchen in the Red Bank city of the US state of New Jersey.
The action took place in co-operation with the Murphy Family Foundation, says the Facebook page of the pub.
In 2011 the singer opened the restaurant. His special concept: "Everyone pays as much as possible". In an interview with CBS, Bon Jovi said in 2016: "If you come to this restaurant, there are no awards in the menu."
If you need help, you can work together instead of paying. Other guests can also pay for food for people they can not afford.
Chef distributes free sandwiches
The 56-year-old is not the first to offer culinary support to those affected.
Spanish chef Jose Andres spreads free sandwiches to his restaurants in Washington. He also opened a hot food dispenser near the White House.
Recently, Canadian flight managers sent hundreds of pizzas to their American counterparts.
Washington's Bread for the City also distributes food bags that last for five days.
In Middletown, New York, there are pet food supplements for the affected: Animal shelter spreads a food bag to a family.
The Democrats reject Trump's deal
US President Donald Trump presented a new offer to opposition democrats to end the budget dispute. In a speech at the White House, he proposed to Democrats to protect groups of migrants in the United States for three years of deportation. Instead, he insisted on his request for a $ 5.7 billion dollar wall on the border with Mexico, whose funding is denying Democrats. The Democrats clearly made it clear that even the new impulses would not lead to a breakthrough in the stalemate.
Democrat Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, rejected Trump's announcements previously announced by the US media even before her TV address – she talked about a "pipe breaker." (Man)
