Senior Meal Delivery

Immediately doubling the City’s meal delivery program to serve 12,000 home-bound seniors following the COVID-19 Safer-At-Home order in Spring 2020.

Key Impact

12,000 low-income seniors receiving meal delivery 2x each week

When senior dining centers temporarily closed in response to the Covid-19  Safer At Home order and Angelenos were ordered to stay at home to curb the spread of the virus, thousands of seniors found themselves without access to nourishing meals. The Mayor’s Fund stepped in to expand the city’s senior meal delivery program from 12,500 meals per week to 120,000 meals per week until public funding could accommodate these seniors’ needs.
