From quick meals that can be picked up to food dropped off at homes, Riverside County is offering several free food options to disabled and vulnerable adults as stay-at-home orders continue during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Adults who have a disability or are over age 60 can contact Riverside County Office on Aging, which offers food delivery for critical emergencies, two weeks supply of pantry and essential items, home-delivered meals, and Grab-and-Go meal packages at community center locations.
Seniors or disabled adults can call (951) 867- 3895 or visit rcAging.org to determine their need for any one of the following service options:
• Grab-and-Go Meals: Up to seven to 14 days of cooked and frozen meals ready for pick up
• Courtesy Pantry: Two weeks supply of food delivered within five to seven days
• Home-Delivered Meals: Up to seven to 14 days of delivered food with no contact for

Once implemented, seniors will be able to select from preapproved restaurants, who will deliver a
maximum of three meals a day to their homes. More details on the newly announced statewide
