      DONATE NOW Home > The Noble Spoon A Message Concerning Noble Spoon Home Delivered Meals Dear Community, ​ We hope this message finds you well and safe in our ever-changing environment. We want take this opportunity to share an important message concerning The Noble Spoon. We, at Council on Aging, want to thank all of our Noble Spoon customers for your faith in our ability to provide you with quality meals at an affordable price. Many of you started with The Noble Spoon years ago, and others found these meals when the Shelter-in-Place was mandated. We are grateful for the opportunity to have served each and every one of you. That being said, Covid-19 and the 2020 fire season has significantly impacted our community, and food insecurity is on the rise. To that end, we must shift our resources to high volume emergency meals and suspend production of The Noble Spoon brand for several months. If you are one of our loyal customers, you are invited to pre-order until 10:00am on September 2, 2020. We cannot take any orders after that, and deliveries will stop on September 18, 2020. ​ In a crisis, Council on Aging is agile. In fact, it is kind of our super power. We are exceptional at ensuring that our community has an array of meal options in uncertain times. So, if you are a Noble Spoon customer, please know that The Noble Spoon will return with a renewed commitment to seek improvement and provide Sonoma County with fresh, local ingredients, worthy of your loyalty. ​ Thank you for your support! ​ Still looking for chef-prepared restaurant quality meals? We have you covered!
