All the local Food Banks and Meals on Wheels programs are in great need of healthy people to volunteer to pack and deliver food. People over 65 and those with chronic health conditions are to stay in home isolation, according to Governor Gavin Newsom’s order of last Sunday. However, these services are considered to be essential services under the Shelter in Place proclamation, so younger healthy people may still assist. Please do, if you are able.
