Delivering Meals to
Activity Center Participants
Sixty and Better delivered meals to Participants at their homes because of Activity Center closures. Staff and Volunteers went through special Coronavirus training, and throughout the meal deliveries maintained a distance of 6-ft, wore gloves, and frequently used hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.
CHECK BACK REGULARLY FOR UPDATES
At Sixty and Better, our primary concern is for the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve. We are continuing to monitor information around Coronavirus (COVID-19), including guidelines from federal, state, and local authorities.
All Activity Centers are closed and all Wellness Classes are postponed until further notice.
Sixty and Better is providing home deliveries of nutritious meals to Activity Center Participants.
We have developed contingency plans with community partners, and began distribution of nutritious meals to Activity Center Participants the week of March 16, 2020. Sixty and Better is committed to providing meal services to our participants who had previously attended Activity Centers on a regular basis.
