Also, visit the Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance for information about COVID-19.

Several organizations are providing relief for senior citizens. If you have a neighbor over 65, you can contact Meals on Wheels in Yolo County or visit www.mealsonwheelsamerica.org.

Visit https://yolofoodbank.org/ for more information. According to the Yolo County Food Bank, website “individuals who are not low-income are urged to contact a for-profit grocery delivery service, so that Yolo Food Bank can prioritize the needs of low-income residents during this time of crisis.”

   Several stores and companies in Yolo County offer food delivery service and pick up options online that reduce contact with others. If you are, heading to the store for an elderly neighbor or loved one you can order online and pick items up at the store for them. You can also offer to have goods delivered home to avoid lines or the store completely. Raley’s, Walmart and apps like Instacart can deliver groceries and other goods.  Some companies eliminate a personal shopping fee on any order over a specific amount.
