Kern County and CAPK Launch Senior Food Delivery Program


 Kern County seniors face an elevated risk from the COVID-19 virus, especially during the recent surge of cases. In order to help, Kern County and Community Action Partnership of Kern (CAPK) have teamed up to launch the Food2Door Program. This collaborative helps to ensure these individuals facing high risk can get critical food supplies delivered directly to their door to minimize trips to the grocery store and other public places in search of a meal. 

“Community Action Partnership of Kern has always been passionate about increasing our capacity to deliver food to those facing crisis,” says CAPK Executive Officer Jeremy Tobias. “Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, we have doubled food distribution through our network of partner sites to around 2.5 million pounds a month. Now, through this collaborative with Kern County, we can deliver food directly to at-risk seniors in their homes.” 

Food2Door will serve seniors 65 and over. Each participant will get a 70-pound food box each month – dropped off at their home by Food2Door drivers. Enrolling in the program is easy. Seniors can call CAPK’s 2-1-1 Resource and Referral line to confirm their eligibility for the program and sign up. For more information, please visit www.capk.org.
