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:
1. 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
2. Provide essential economic stimulus to local businesses to stay afloat during the COVID-19 crisis
The City of Pasadena is now accepting inquiries from seniors interested in participating in the Great Plates Delivered program. If you are interested in participating, please call (626) 744-7311 to answer questions and determine if you are eligible.
