Food and Prescriptions for Self-Isolating Residents

The County of San Luis Obispo is initiating a program to procure food and prescription medication for self-isolating seniors (65+) and individuals with chronic medical conditions who do not have access to other means of procurement (e.g. family, friends, neighbors, caregivers, or other community organizations). 

There are limited services to support residents who need help procuring food and/or prescription medication. 

If you can contact someone else to assist you, please reach out to them first. Consider your family, friends, neighbors, caregivers, or other community organizations.

You can apply online at www.readyslo.org or call the Phone Assistance Center at 805-543-2444.

After your request is submitted, you will be contacted by County staff with more information.  

Program Details

Who qualifies for this program?
