We believe no senior should suffer from hunger or isolation.

Who we are

SOS Meals on Wheels’ primary function is to deliver nutritious, balanced meals to homebound seniors in Hayward, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Castro Valley, and Oakland. Our goal is to help seniors stay in their homes and remain healthy and happy for as long as safely possible.

If you or someone you know is 60 years of age or older, is unable to shop for food or prepare meals and does not receive help from a reliable caregiver, please call us today.

I would like to compliment the ladies who deliver the meals. They are always cheerful and put the food in my refrigerator since I use a walker and can barely navigate. On one occasion I had a severe dizzy spell and she [the driver] assisted me to a chair, preventing a fall. Thank you so much and I am so pleased this service exists.

I lost 44 lbs from my cancer and treatments, and it became really difficult to leave the house and shop for food, so I was eating pretty poorly. Meals on Wheels has been bringing me meals now for over a year and I really do have more energy and strength now, and the variety of food is great.

If it weren’t for Meals on Wheels, I’d eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches—lots.
