One of the components of the Feeding Mesa program is the restaurant kitchen "Food Buy Out" program, which is generating additional business for Mesa restaurants by providing meals for the community. The "Food Buy Out" began May 11 with several participating restaurants providing meals to senior living facilities.
The City created the Feeding Mesa program as part of the Mesa CARES Initiative to meet community needs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Funding for the Feeding Mesa program is from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act approved by Congress March 27. Food distribution is one of the main priorities of the CARES Act.
