COVID-19

The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has drastically changed all of our lives. Due to the severity of the crisis, many new resources are being developed to get information and resources out to people in need. People over the age of 60 and those with pre-existing health conditions are most at risk for COVID-19. To protect yourself from COVID-19 it is best to stay home and practice increased routine hygiene. Be sure to wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with an alcohol content of at least 60%. Do not touch your face, eyes, mouth, or nose. Avoid physical contact with people outside of your home, the CDC recommends a distance of at least six feet between people. Cough and sneeze into your elbow or into a tissue that is immediately discarded into the trash. Wash and disinfect commonly used surfaces often. To get more resources and information about COVID-19, dial 2-1-1.

Meals and Nutrition

Many non-profit and community organizations are expanding access food through delivered meals, sack lunches, shelf-stable food, and other means. Some of these programs may require means testing or prioritization of those most in need.

Mobile Meals of Southern Arizona (MMSA) has been delivering medically-tailored meals, regular socialization, and enhanced community support to homebound individuals with disabilities throughout Pima County since 1970. Our mission is accomplished with the help of over 300 community volunteers and nine local hospitals and healthcare facilities that prepare low-cost, special diet meals for the vulnerable adults we serve. Mobile Meals delivers freshly-prepared, medically-tailored meals to seniors and adults with disabilities who cannot shop or cook meals for themselves. Nearly 90% of our clients are low to extremely-low income adults with physical and mental health comorbidities such as diabetes, stroke, amputation, cardiac and respiratory distress, renal failure, cancer, blindness, and dementia. Many of the younger adults living with multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, schizophrenia, severe depression, and PTSD (especially veterans). Serving 500 homebound clients annually, meals are delivered by trained and compassionate volunteers Monday through Friday and are freshly prepared to meet each client’s specific dietary needs. Meals are delivered along 33 daily routes in 25 zip codes to neighbors in Tucson, South Tucson, Vail, Corona de Tucson, Sahuarita, and Green Valley.
