The Health Trust Meals on Wheels program delivers hot meals to homebound seniors and adults throughout Santa Clara County. Meals on Wheels is in need of volunteers to help deliver meals to our clients, as well as provide companionship. For many of our clients, the Meals on Wheels volunteer is the only person they may see all day, or even all week, especially during these times. Meals on Wheels volunteers enable many older adults to remind independent, and bring peace of mind to family and friends.
