California seems to have found a novel solution to a couple of problems caused by the novel coronavirus. Governor Gavin Newsom announced a plan on Friday to help restaurants generate revenue while at the same time getting meals to at-risk seniors.
The Restaurants Deliver: Home Meals for Seniors program will work with local restaurants to deliver three nutritious meals a day to in-need seniors. This will allow the elderly to stay healthy and stay home, as well as pump some much-needed life into the desperate hospitality industry. It’s being done in partnership with local governments and FEMA.
