COVID-19

The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has drastically changed all of our lives. Due to the severity of the crisis, many new resources are being developed to get information and resources out to people in need. People over the age of 60 and those with pre-existing health conditions are most at risk for COVID-19. To protect yourself from COVID-19 it is best to stay home and practice increased routine hygiene. Be sure to wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with an alcohol content of at least 60%. Do not touch your face, eyes, mouth, or nose. Avoid physical contact with people outside of your home, the CDC recommends a distance of at least six feet between people. Cough and sneeze into your elbow or into a tissue that is immediately discarded into the trash. Wash and disinfect commonly used surfaces often. To get more resources and information about COVID-19, dial 2-1-1.

Meals and Nutrition

Many non-profit and community organizations are expanding access food through delivered meals, sack lunches, shelf-stable food, and other means. Some of these programs may require means testing or prioritization of those most in need.

Many of the younger adults living with multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, schizophrenia, severe depression, and PTSD (especially veterans). Serving 500 homebound clients annually, meals are delivered by trained and compassionate volunteers Monday through Friday and are freshly prepared to meet each client’s specific dietary needs.
