SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom today visited Queen Sheba Ethiopian Cuisine in Sacramento, where he helped prepare meals for Great Plates Delivered — a first-in-the-nation program that partners with local businesses to deliver nutritious meals to older Californians and other adults at high risk from COVID-19.
“The Great Plates Delivered program has served more than 1.5 million meals while supporting local businesses and keeping older Californians and high-risk populations safe,” said Governor Newsom. “The program’s success is an example of what’s possible when federal, state and local leaders set aside politics and come together to protect our communities from the threat of COVID-19.”
Launched in April, the Great Plates Delivered program has served more than 1.5 million meals, helping seniors and other adults at high risk from COVID-19 stay home and stay healthy by delivering three nutritious meals to them a day.
Since its creation, the program has supported thousands of restaurant jobs, providing essential economic stimulus to support local businesses struggling during the COVID-19 crisis.
