In partnership with the local community, the County of Marin is participating in the State of California’s Great Plates Delivered Program
, set up to support older adults who are sheltering in place, unable to access meals, and ineligible for other nutrition programs.
Marin Great Plates program is free to recipients, and is also a way to support local restaurants and other food providers who are struggling because of the economic downturn related to COVID-19.
The Marin County Board Supervisors approved the program during its May 12 meeting as proposed by the Marin County Department of Health and Human Services
(HHS). Marin Great Plates will launch its pilot program and deliver three restaurant meals a day, five days per week, to older adults starting May 18. The program will run through May 29 with the possibility of extension through June 10.
