At its regular meeting on May 12, the Riverdale City Council passed a resolution expanding the current “Meals-to-Go” program to include individuals who have lost their job, either temporarily or permanently, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This expands the program from its initial scope which focused on seniors and low-to-moderate income households.
“We’ve had about a dozen people take advantage of the program so far,” said Mayor Mike Bawden. “The word is spreading slowly, which is fine, because it gives us time to work out any kinks in the system with the folks at The Pancake House.”
The grant will cover the cost of meals and delivery for up to 500 meals through April 24, 2021.
Meals can be ordered via the City’s website (by using the form, below) from The Duck Creek Pancake House who will prepare the meals and deliver them to Riverdale residents between 11:30 and 1:30.
Residents can also call City Hall during regular work hours (Mon – Fri, from 8am – 5pm) to place orders for the coming week.
Meals will not be prepared and served on Sundays or Holidays.
