Program ends in July 2021

At the state’s direction, the Great Plates Meals Program will end in July 2021. This temporary emergency response program has delivered over 2.7 million meals to eligible older adults during COVID. 

For program participants who still need food assistance, view meals and grocery programs offered by SFHSA and our partner organizations.
