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.
Unfortunately, funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) program will end on December 8, 2020.
We here at Asian Kitchen believe this is the worst timing to end deliveries given the recent spike in COVID-19 cases. Having provided meals since the beginning of this program, we recognize the invaluable service this provides for our elderly neighbors.
Great Plates Delivered helps seniors and other adults at high risk from COVID-19 to stay home and stay healthy by delivering three nutritious meals a day. The program also provides essential economic stimulus to local businesses struggling to stay afloat during the COVID-19 crisis.
Your donations will help extend this program and support your community through this pandemic, paying for meals and deliveries for senior citizens. Thank you for your contributions!
