County of San Diego Recruiting Local Restaurants for 'Great Plates Delivered' State-Funded Program for At-Risk Seniors
The County of San Diego has launched the Great Plates Delivered program, a state-funded initiative aimed at connecting struggling local restaurants to high-risk seniors to encourage staying at home by arranging delivery of three nutritious meals a day. The dual purpose of the program is to provide meals to adults 65 and older and adults 60-64 who are at high-risk, while supporting local restaurants and other food provider/agricultural workers who have closed or are struggling to remain open due to COVID-19 mitigation measures.
The County of San Diego has released a process for interested restaurants, caterers, and other food suppliers to apply by completing an online survey form. Please note applications are still being accepted.
We encourage local restaurants to apply for this program! Information about senior participant sign-ups will be released in the near future, once the restaurants have been brought on board.
