    and halt/and to halt

    Dear all,

    The following sentence "as the government tried to get aid to hungry survivors and halt looting" can I say " and to halt looting"?
    When do I need to add"to" after "and"?

    thank you

    thank you
    Yes you can.
    Generally you don't need to add another "to", but sometimes it's better for stylistic reasons. And it's necessary if you have any ambiguity without it.
