Great Plates Delivered – Results

The Rancho Mirage Great Plates program has provided over 270,000 meals to those in need since the City began administering the program in May 2020. The City has partnered with local restaurants to provide nutritious meals that are diverse, with a menu that varies each week. These meals are delivered on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays… right to the doorsteps of participants. This program has resulted in over six million dollars being spent locally, thus creating demand for local employment during difficult times.

Hear from our Great Plates Participants

“I just wanted to thank you for providing this program. When I say that it has been a lifesaver for me and my senior friends; that is not an exaggeration. You truly might have saved our lives from COVID 19.” Great Plates Participant

“Your program has been wonderful for my friend. She is 94, has trouble cooking, and it has been a godsend for her to have your wonderful meals delivered to her. It gives her something to look forward to, and she has been so pleased with the food.” Friend of Great Plates Participant
