Great Plates Delivered
On April 24, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom announced the launch of a first-in-the-nation “Great Plates Delivered” program, a meal delivery service for California’s older adults.
Great Plates Delivered has two purposes:
- Help seniors and other adults at high risk from COVID-19 to stay home and stay healthy by delivering three nutritious meals a day
- Provide essential economic stimulus to local businesses struggling to stay afloat during the COVID-19 crisis
The County is in the process of developing this program and meals are not being delivered at this time. The County will contact interested persons, screen them for eligibility, and keep them informed as to when they can expect their first meal.
This food delivery program is designed to provide meals to Alameda County adults age 65 and older and adults age 60-64 who are at high-risk, as defined by the CDC and who are unable to access meals while staying at home and are ineligible for other nutrition programs. Please note that this program is subject to a limited time period and available funding under the State or local Shelter In Place Order. Individuals residing in Oakland will be referred to the City of Oakland Great Plates Program.
