Pasco Provides Meals to Residents in Need During Pandemic

As part of an ongoing commitment to serve those in need and to support our local business community during the coronavirus pandemic, the Pasco Board of County Commissioners appropriated federal CARES Act funding for two crucial programs aimed at curbing hunger.  Operation Feed Pasco and Dining Out at Home are keeping vulnerable residents fed during these challenging times in partnership with 16 local restaurants.

Together, with the help of community partners, more than 54,000, cost-effective, nutritious meals have been provided to Pasco County residents in need. The programs are keeping seniors, families, children and the homeless fed, while helping our local restaurants stay afloat. Learn more about the efforts and hear from the people we’re serving in this brief video: bit.ly/PascoMeals.

Operation Feed Pasco is made possible by a $600,000 grant to United Way of Pasco County that provides funds for 11 local restaurants to create hot meals to distribute.

Pasco County Senior Services partnered with Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas, Inc. to create Dining Out at Home, a program funded with $264,695 through the Family First Coronavirus Response Act.  This program safely serves seniors in need at their home with meals made from five local restaurants for pickup or delivery through Pasco’s senior services team.

The Pasco County Senior Services Division is dedicated to supporting the health, vitality, independence, and well‑being of seniors in Pasco County.  Please connect with the Pasco County Senior Services Division through one of the four senior centers or through social media to learn more about services and activities offered, to make a donation, or to learn about volunteer opportunities.
