For our youngest residents, schools across the County are setting up their own food distribution systems for low-income families whose children depend on the lunch or breakfast they get from the cafeteria.

 

For older adults seeking prepared meals, Santa Clara County’s Senior Nutrition Program continues to serve adults over 60, disabled adults that live with older adults, and the spouses of people that are 60 and over. This program now follows a take-out model at most locations, while a handful of locations have temporarily closed to encourage seniors to shelter at home.

For low-income households in need of groceries, Second Harvest of Silicon Valley offers a toll-free hotline that helps people in need of food find resources in their neighborhood. Individuals can call 800-984-3663 or text GETFOOD to 408-455-5181 to request assistance.

 

Silicon Valley Strong also offers a free curb-side food pick-up program for adults over 60 years old. Residents in quarantine, as well as older adults and persons with disabilities or health conditions who need support can call the The Health Trust at 408-961-9870 or email the Meals on Wheels program at MOW@healthtrust.org. Private sector businesses who have a specific desire to help with food supply and delivery can contact: Covid19SJBusiness@sanjoseca.gov.
