The Great Plates Delivered program provides nutritious meals to adults 65 and older and adults 60-64 who are at high-risk and who are unable to access meals while staying at home.  The program also supports local restaurants who have closed or who are struggling to remain open due to COVID-19.  These meals are at no cost to the eligible participants.  Seniors can register for this service by calling the LOEL Center at 209-369-1591 or by email at
