With partnerships between the LA County Department of Workforce, Aging and Community Services (WDACS) and the Office of Emergency Management, LA County will provide three home-delivered meals a day to qualifying older individuals while also stimulating the economy to bring employees back to work from the restaurant, hospitality, and transportation industries. Businesses who are interested in providing individuals with daily meals may fill out the Food Provider Interest Form.
This program is designed to support individuals who are 65 and older and adults who are 60-64 who are high risk from COVID-19, in encouraging them to stay at home and stay healthy with three (3) nutritious meals a day. To be eligible for participation, individuals must meet requirements that include the following: age, inability to prepare or obtain meals, and are not currently receiving assistance from other state or federal nutrition assistance programs such as CalFresh/SNAP or Meals on wheels.
