    is meals on wheels available to disabled Non-Seniors? I am in dire health straights, living in San Jose on a pittance, while trying to get treatment for life threatening disease, and am not eating well. SSDI is my only source of income, and I have no transportation. Can you help?

    There are 2 MOW offered in San Jose. One is through SOURCEWISE & the other through The HealthTrust. The first program gives a loaf of bread, a half gal. milk then alternates with juice. There was only 1 banana fresh. Everything else is packaged processed food. The second program is called a hot meal. It is because they deliver daily & you choose your beverage of milk or 4 oz of juice. HealthTrust delivers daily. None of the food is fresh. Only a piece of fruit or cut up melon or grapes removed from the stem are offered. You get very few vegetables for anyone who prefers a larger amount of vegetables or fruit in your diet, neither of these programs is great for any person who watches their sodium intake or fiber. It’s not what I’d call healthfood. I do not recomend these plans for any senior who wish’s to maintain dietary health. They might do better using a brown bag or a food bank for nutrition. I’m sorry I must be so critical. I needed help due to severe financial & health limitations. It looks like I might do better getting my food from a food bank & preparing it myself. I have mobility issues & arthritis in every joint where it’s very difficult to fix meals for myself. However, I’d rather eat less than consume processed sugary cereals, processed foods, packaged foods, canned fruit full of sugar, starch, chemicals. Thanks but no thanks. This is a shame people feed seniors in need this way. It’s depressing! Shame on you.
