SOS Meals on Wheels is a non-profit organization dedicated to feeding homebound seniors in Hayward, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Castro Valley and parts of East Oakland. Every weekday, about 800 warm, nutritious meals are delivered to seniors who are over 60 years of age and unable to purchase or prepare food for themselves. In addition to transporting the food, Meals on Wheels’ drivers provide daily check-ins for these most vulnerable elders, assistance with small tasks and remembrance on special occasions such as Christmas and Mother’s Day. If seniors need weekend food, they receive frozen meals and bag lunches at the end of the week. In fiscal year 2012, SOS Meals on Wheels delivered about 167,000 meals to over 1,100 seniors.
