"We are excited that Great Plates Delivered (GPD) participants in San José and throughout Santa Clara County will continue to receive these vitals meals," said Aneliza Del Pinal, CEO of Sourcewise when the program was extended earlier.
Since that time, GPD has been extended on a monthly basis and the latest announcement guarantees the statewide meal delivery program will continue through at least May, with discussions to extend the program further.
GPD's collaboration with World Central Kitchen (WCK), Sourcewise, and the City of San José has resulted in over 7,364 total meals delivered to eligible seniors, 65 and older, and those with high-risk conditions, just last week. Two meals are delivered each day in one delivery Monday through Friday.

GPD is part of the "Silicon Valley Strong" coalition of school districts, neighboring cities, faith and community-based organizations, serving over two million meals per week to those affected by the economic impacts of COVID-19 at its peak.
WCK's partnership with participating restaurants were early measures to stimulate restaurant recovery, boost food distribution efforts, and expand meal distribution for homebound seniors.
According to data from the City of San José, GPD served over 1,500 daily meals to seniors last week, with all meals coming from local neighborhood restaurants and participating mom-and-pop shops.
"WCK is proud to work with our partners in Santa Clara County during this pandemic," said Ramiro Arevalo Jr., Partnerships and Relief Operations Manager at WCK during an interview last year. "Partnering with local restaurants attacks this crisis on two fronts. It ensures seniors receive the nutrition they need while supporting small businesses as they continue operating in times of hardship."

Great Plates Delivered Frequently Asked Questions
Eligible participants in GPD receive two meals (lunch and dinner) delivered once a day Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 3 pm.
Aside from contactless doorstep delivery, participants can also choose either a protein or vegetarian/gluten free option.
There is no cost to participants for Great Plates Delivered. Instead, in conjunction with federal support, each region participating in GPD determines how to administer the program locally – meaning costs across the state may vary.
