Strategic Priority
Economic Strength And Poverty Reduction

Recommend approval to renew an annual contract for senior meal delivery services with TLT Smiling Faces Transportation (Savannah, GA)(A) for an amount up to $112,465. The Recreation and Leisure Services Department normally uses this contract to provide transportation services for senior participants in the Golden Age Programs for daily commute to Golden Age centers. During the global pandemic, however, the contract is being used to deliver meals to participants and will resume transportation services once conditions return to normal and facilities reopen. In the first quarter of 2021, this contract was used to deliver 2,543 meals to seniors at their homes. Meals are provided Monday thru Friday during lunch.  The price for delivery of one meal is $5. The cost for providing transportation services is $14 per participant per round-trip to the Golden Age Centers. The total amount spent in 2020 on this contract was $108,015.93.
