Great Plates Delivered seeking restaurants to service seniors during self-isolation
The County recently announced the Great Plates Delivered program to support seniors and local businesses needing assistance during the COVID-19 crisis. The program calls for local food providers to deliver three nutritious meals a day to folks at high-risk from COVID-19 to support them staying home and healthy. The program will also serve as a form of economic relief to local businesses and workers struggling to stay afloat during the pandemic.
In Mission Viejo, the City is working with Age Well Senior Services on the procedures for individuals to register for this service, which will be announced in the near future. However, restaurants interested in applying for the program can find more details at this link or by calling 714-480-6450.
I happen to have some spare time on my hands these days and would be happy to volunteer my services to help deliver meals to high risk residents.
The Great Plates program is a State program and you can call this number to volunteer: 714-480-6450.
The City of Mission Viejo also has senior meals programs and may need volunteers. If you would like to offer your help, please call the Norman P. Murray Community Center at 949-470-3062.
