The Santa Clara County Meals On Wheels Program has promoted the role of nutrition in preventative health and long term care for over 40 years. The Meals on Wheels program provides more than 600,000 meals to homebound seniors, helping them to remain healthy, maintain their independence and retain their dignity.
The Senior Nutrition Program offers two home delivered meal options:
The Santa Clara County Meals On Wheels Program provides meal service to homebound seniors 60 years of age and older who are unable to provide meals for themselves or have difficulty obtaining food because of illness, frailty, or disability. Eligible seniors receive a weekly delivery of 7 breakfasts and 7 frozen lunch/dinner entrées supplemented by fresh fruit, juice, milk, bread, and other grocery items. Meals on Wheels participants receive nutritious meals equivalent to 2/3 of the Recommended Daily Requirement for older adults.
The Yu Ai Kai's neighborhood Meals On Wheels program provides hot meals to eligible seniors in the Japantown and Berryessa Area.
