On May 7, 2020, by unanimous vote of the Rancho Mirage City Council, the City became the local administrator of the Great Plates Delivered Program for our community.
The Great Plates Delivered Program is a meal delivery service from local Rancho Mirage restaurants that helps older residents with two purposes:
- To help seniors and other adults at high risk from COVID-19 to stay home and stay healthy by delivering three nutritious meals a day; and
- To provide essential economic stimulus to local businesses struggling to stay afloat during the COVID-19 crisis.
Since the Program began, local restaurants have delivered 209,226 meals to our seniors in need. The participating restaurants are locally owned and operated, with owners working alongside their hard-working staff to prep, prepare, package, and deliver these nutritious meals.
