Our Impact

The impact of our work lies in the stories we hear…

From the kitchen volunteer who is pleasantly surprised to feel more connected to the community and to their colleagues after working the tray line together…

And the delivery driver who forms a special bond with a client, discovering the power of human connection and finding that they too are nourished by these daily visits…

And in the words of gratitude from the seniors themselves when they tell us they don’t know how they would survive without the food we bring to them…

And from the family members who comment on how much better their parent, grandparent, godparent, aunt or uncle has been doing since they began receiving meals…

 

1,600

Meals prepared daily

In addition to the 1,200 we prepare and deliver to seniors in our service area, we prepare an additional 400 meals , including specialty diets, for seniors in Fremont, Newark, or Union City through a partnership with LIFE ElderCare.

 

52+

Years Serving our communitY

What began as a small outreach program in an old church facility in Hayward has grown steadily over a half century. It is projected that the number of seniors living in poverty in Alameda County will continue to rise at an unprecedented rate. We intend to keep fighting on behalf of vulnerable seniors for the next half century and beyond!
