Orange County has recently launched the new Great Plates Delivered program to provide three nutritious meals per day for seniors. The County will partner with eligible local food providers to deliver food to at-risk residents in our communities. The benefits of the program are twofold, as it will provide economic relief to local businesses while supporting and encouraging seniors to stay healthy while they are at home.
Individuals who wish to receive meals must meet the following criteria:
- Aged 65 or older, or 60-64 and at high-risk as defined by the CDC
- Lives alone or with one other program-eligible adult
- Not currently receiving assistance from other state or federal nutrition assistance programs
- Affirms an inability to prepare or obtain meals
For more information, individuals and businesses may call the Information & Assistance Call Center at 714-480-6450. Read the full press release and eligibility information.
