The Senior Nutrition Program has 35 sites, find one near you by visiting bit.ly/svstrong-senior. It’s easy. Simply call your preferred location the day before, and when you pick up your meal just provide your name, birthday and zip code.

The City of San José is leading the countywide food distribution system in response to County and State Orders to shelter in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through Silicon Valley Strong, the City is working with non-profit community partners, food delivery companies, school districts, faith and community organizations to ensure food security for our most vulnerable populations. The list of non-profits, faith-based and City nutrition sites where meals are served is updated every Monday.
