We are pleased to be associated with the Great Plates program. This is an initiative by the San Diego Health and Human Service Agency.
Great Plates Delivered: Home Meals for Seniors
Serves older adults 65+ and those 60-64 with certain health conditions
Provides 3 meals per day
Initiated by Governor Newsom, and supported by FEMA, state, and local funds.
Great Plates 2.0: Dinner Delivered.
Serves adults of all ages (18+) with health conditions or disabilities
Provides one hearty meal per day
Initiated by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors and supported by local allocation of CARES Act funds.
These temporary programs deliver meals to older adults, as well as adults of all ages with health conditions or disabilities, who meet eligibility criteria. Although the programs are similar, they are funded by different entities and serve different target populations.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Following federal requirements, these temporary programs are open to older adults and adults of all ages who have an underlying health condition or disability that makes it difficult to prepare or obtain food.
These programs are intended to fill a gap and serve those who are not eligible for federally funded programs, such as CalFresh (income must be between $24,981-$74,940 for a single household and $33,821-$101,460 for a two-person household).
