During the COVID-19 shelter-in-place, Governor Newsom approved a plan to help seniors stay home and stay healthy, while providing eco-nomic stimulus for local restaurants.


The City of San Jose has partnered with Santa Clara County’s Senior Nutrition program (that subsidizes our Senior Center meals) to provide 3 free, nutritious meals a day, from local restaurants, to adults 65 or older, or those 60-64 who are at high risk from COVID-19.


Seniors in Santa Clara County can get 3 free, nutritious meals a day, delivered to their home. Apply for the program through Sourcewise (call 408-350-3200, Option #1).  For more information, Great Plates Delivered.
