Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a new program to feed seniors in the city of Los Angeles during his daily coronavirus news conference Wednesday.
Garcetti announced a new initiative to help seniors in the city of LA get food. More than 12,000 seniors will be part of the program, the mayor said.
“We will now be sending 10 meals a week to more than 12,000 home bound seniors,” Garcetti said.
There are only two requirements, the mayor said, “You have to be 60 or over and live in the city of LA–that’s it.”
People interested in the program were told to call 213-263-5226 starting at 9 a.m. Thursday. Phone lines will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Garcetti was joined by USC President Carol Folt, along with medical experts from the university and the LA County Department of Public Health.
