Second Harvest of Silicon Valley supports  low-income households in need of groceries. Their toll-free hotline 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.

CalFresh (food stamp) applications are being accepted over the phone for residents who need help buying food.

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.

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 seniors who must go to grocery stores, many stores provide senior hours to help protect their health and safety. Additional supportive services for all adults are available here
