Friendly Home Delivery Service
Gold Country Community Services, Nevada County Foodbank, Interfaith Food Ministries, and FREED are partnering to identify seniors, people with disabilities, and individual’s with chronic health conditions who need support with home delivered groceries due to COVID-19 self-isolation or self-quarantine.
FREED is also coordinating home delivery of other essential items such as prescriptions, personal care items, or other health and safety related needs for seniors, people with disabilities, and individual’s with chronic health conditions who need support with home delivery due to COVID-19 self-isolation or self-quarantine. Individuals needing services can contact Dierdre at (530) 477-3333, Ex. 201 or deirdre@FREED.org.
This program is designed to meet an un-met need for individuals who cannot otherwise access basic needs during this time. All other resources should be explored before making a referral such as if the person can order online or pay for delivery services already available.Senior Grocery Bag Program - outreach flyer
