“The most important thing is to be able to have our seniors to have access to a warm meal on a daily basis and ensure that we reduce as best as we can the risk of them contracting COVID or even the flu,” Sandra Valdez, SACA chief operating officer, said.

SACA is also working on a community-wide program to get COVID vaccines and booster shots to more people.
