We are excited to announce that we have returned to our kitchen in Hayward, and have resumed hot food service!


Due to COVID-19 precautions, our Senior Dining Sites are able to continue to offer Take-Away meals. A limited number of sites are beginning to reopen to group dining.

In-person dining is currently available at these locations, along with the option to take-away:

  • Hayward Area Senior Center
  • Downtown Oakland Senior Center
  • St. Mary's Center
  • San Leandro Senior Community Center

We will continue to update this page as we receive the “green light” from our community partners who re-open to offer in-person dining.

Senior Meals are available Monday – Friday from 12:00-12:30pm. These delicious, nutritious meals are served hot and ready to take home to eat. At most sites, meals are provided in reusable containers which clients exchange on their next visit. Our reusable containers divert thousands of single-use food containers from Alameda County’s waste stream each month.

Each meal is low sodium and contains at least 1/3 of seniors Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) including fruits and vegetables high in Vitamins C and A.

Senior Meals are for anyone in the community 60+ years old. An annual registration is required along with an advanced reservation at the distribution site. For each meal a $3.75 contribution is suggested, but no eligible senior will be turned away for lack of funds.

Annual Registration Required. Pick up a form at any site, or see link to the left for the Registration Form to print and complete in advance then to take to the open distribution site of your choice.

Advanced reservation for a meal is required. Contact the site of your choice directly to reserve your meal. See our Site Map for contact information.
