Sacramento launches ‘Great Plates’ program to feed seniors, help restaurants

Restaurant owners can make up to $12,000 per week with the program, but it’s unclear when they’ll be paid for their services. 

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — During a Zoom press conference on Wednesday, Mayor Darrell Steinberg announced the launch of the Great Plates feeding program for Sacramento seniors.


Thirty restaurants are participating, and Zion Taddese owner of Queen Sheba is one of them.


"Fifty meals, every other day," Taddese explained. "So we will be doing breakfast lunch and dinner every day."
