Great Plates Delivered: Home Meals for Our Seniors
Nutritious meal delivery can reduce COVID-19 spread
Providing food security for seniors in Contra Costa County is important to our overall effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and save lives.
Our Great Plates Program delivers nutritious restaurant-prepared meals to the homes of seniors who are sheltering in place. This program is funded by a combination of federal, state and county dollars.
Eligible residents are those not receiving benefits from other federal or state programs like CalFresh and have difficulty preparing their own meals. Other criteria for eligibility is:
Ages 65 and older, or
Ages 60-64 who are at high-risk from COVID-19 due to underlying health conditions or who have been exposed to or contracted COVID-19 but do not need hospitalization
Providing prepared home-delivered meals to our seniors will reduce essential outings and slow the spread of COVID-19.
Please call Contra Costa's Senior Information and Assistance Helpline at 925-229-8434 to sign up.
