Food delivery now available for “isolated and vulnerable” ShasCo residents
SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. — As the Covid-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place order continues to affect residents throughout the state, Shasta County Health and Human Services has announced that Shasta Tehama Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) will now be coordinating supplemental food distribution and delivery to isolated seniors, those with disabilities, and the medically vulnerable within Shasta County.
LEADING THE SCNS HEADLINES:
The temporary food service, which will include “non-specific, non-perishable, dry-good food items,” is being offered to those most vulnerable who reside within the county and have limited food supplies, according to SCHHS officials.
The supplemental food will be delivered to homes by volunteers and no substitutions will be available.
To see if you are eligible to receive supplemental food delivery services, visit https://bit.ly/2vIcYwo and fill out the form, or call 211. By completing the online form, you agree to be contacted, according to SCHHS officials.
For regular food distributions, residents should continue to use the Dignity Health Connected Living Community Food Bank using its new no-contact drive-thru model.
For information about community food distributions contact Dignity Health Connected Living at (530) 226-3071 or online at connectedlivingnorthstate.org.
