On  April 7, the  Seal Beach Recreation Department Meals on Wheels team reported delivering approximately 100 free meals to Seal Beach senior citizens.

For homebound individuals years 60 old or older who are  unable to shop and/or prepare meals for  themselves, the  city of Seal Beach delivers meals directly to their home: breakfast items, a cold lunch, and a frozen dinner.

These meals, which provide 100% of the  U.S Nutritional Recommended Dietary Allowance, are available five  days per  week at no  cost to the  community.

“This program is a testament to the  incredible commitment of our  staff team which provide the  highest level of essential and vital services to our  community in need during a major crisis,” said Seal Beach City Manager Jill  Ingram.

For  more information about this  program, contact Seal Beach Recreation Manager Tim Kelsey at 562-431-2527 ext. 1341 or  tkelsey@sealbeachca.gov. For information on the city’s response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, visit www.sealbeachca.gov.
