As a result of the Coronavirus, and the need to serve the City’s most vulnerable population, the City has launched Senior Eats.

About Senior Eats

Senior Eats delivers two nutritious restaurant meals a day to qualifying Moreno Valley seniors. This program has the added benefit of also providing essential economic stimulus for local businesses and workers struggling to stay afloat during the crisis.

The program will serve 150 seniors, 2 meals per day, 5 days per week, for 2 months.

Senior Eats is funded through the Great Plates Delivered program, a first-in-the-nation initiative announced by Governor Gavin Newsom.

How it Works for Restaurants
