The Santa Clara County Meals On Wheels Program delivers 7 breakfasts and 7 frozen meals which may be used for lunch or dinner once a week to homebound seniors unable to cook or shop for themselves. The delivery includes 1/2 gallon low fat milk, a loaf of bread and assorted grocery items. One delivery meets 2/3 of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for an adult for a week. Meals may be heated in a microwave or conventional oven. A suggested donation of $1.80 per day is encouraged. Deliveries are available throughout Santa Clara County.
These meals are made available through a partnership between Santa Clara County Social Services Agency and the Council on Aging Silicon Valley (COA). Participant donations contribute to a portion of the cost of the meal.
