The San Benito County Office of Emergency Services, in partnership with San Benito County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center, re-enrolled in the state funded program Great Plates Delivered, a meal delivery service for California’s older adults. The county is coordinating with state agencies, in addition to local restaurants, to re-launch the program.

Great Plates Delivered has two purposes:

  1. To help seniors (65+) and other adults (60-64) at high risk from COVID-19 (having documented exposure to COVID-19 or underlying health condition) to stay home and stay healthy by delivering three nutritious meals a day;
  2. To provide essential economic stimulus to local businesses struggling to stay afloat during the COVID-19 crisis.

Delivery to qualifying participants is set to begin on Monday, Jan. 18.
