Resources to help you stay safe during a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS)

Food replacement


We partner with local organizations to help you access food options during and after a PSPS. 


Local food banks  provide food replacement during a PSPS and up to three days after. Some food banks may have income restrictions, so please reach out to your local food bank for more information. Note: Food is available while supplies last.

Meals on Wheels is a service that delivers meals to seniors enrolled in the program. Note: If you are already enrolled and experience a PSPS, you'll get an extra meal for each day of the outage.


Eligible seniors must be:

  • 60 years or older
  • The spouse of a person aged 60 or older
  • At risk of malnutrition
  • Unable to visit a Meals on Wheels center
