Meal Box Delivery Service for Vulnerable Populations

Due to numerous calls inquiring about safe grocery shopping for those older adults and others with compromised immune systems, Cerro Gordo Emergency Management in conjunction with Hy-Vee will be offering a box grocery service starting Monday, April 13th. There will be two box options available, one regular (diabetic friendly) and the other gluten free.  The box should last a couple about 2 weeks. If you’re interested in this service, call 641-494-3546 to place your order. You will be asked to provide a name, address, phone number, box option type, and payment (check or cash). Checks should be made out to Hy-Vee. Detailed social distancing delivery and drop off instructions will be offered when order is place. The cost of 1 regular box is $70.00 and the gluten free box is $80.00.  You may not make substitutions to any box.  A detailed listing is included below (brands and some items may need to change based on availability). If a brand substitution is made, it will be of equal cost and nutritional value. A detailed list of items in the boxes is on the second page of this JIC update.
