The Metropolis of Lengthy Seaside’s Nice Plates Delivered program options senior meals – The Sign Tribune newspaper


Pier 76, a seafood restaurant in Moncton, is one of the grocery suppliers hired by the Great Plates Delivered Program to prepare meals for vulnerable seniors.

The City of Moncton is offering a free food delivery service for seniors, according to a city press release on Friday May 29th.

The Great Plates Delivered Program can deliver three meals a day to 600 qualified seniors.

Meals are provided by food vendors and restaurants in Moncton affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Food vendors follow health and safety guidelines when preparing meals, and delivery services and drivers are asked to undergo background checks.

Governor Newsom first announced the program in April. The program is the first of its kind and is offered in partnership with counties, cities and tribes of the state to help seniors stay at home during the ongoing health crisis.

“We continue to work hard to support our older adults in this public health crisis,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “We thank Governor Newsom and FEMA for recognizing this critical need and making this program possible.”

Daily meals received through the Great Plates Delivered Program can easily be refrigerated or frozen for later consumption.
