Curbside Meal Distribution Continues for Qualifying Senior Residents
City Senior Centers will continue to offer curbside meal distribution during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
As all City Senior Centers remain closed until further notice, the Parks and Recreation Department along with El Paso County are continuing to offer meals every Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to noon, at all City Senior Centers for seniors enrolled in the El Paso County Senior Noontime Meal Program.
As part of a joint meal distribution initiative, the County is preparing and providing five pre-packaged meals consisting of pre-packed shelf and pre-cooked frozen meals. These meals are only available to adults 60 years-of-age and older who are currently enrolled and active in the El Paso County Senior Noontime Meal program.
Volunteers and employees with the Parks and Recreation Department are helping distribute the curbside meals. The curbside pickup offers a quick, drive through option to keep seniors and volunteers safely separated during the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
The El Paso Department of Public Health (DPH) continues to urge residents to follow prevention measures such as washing our hands and by self-isolating as much as possible.
