The Yu-Ai Kai Senior Nutrition Program provides nutritious ethnic (Asian) meals to seniors age 60 and over. The program is designed to ensure that seniors receive at least one balanced meal a day to maintain proper nutrition. This program operates Monday through Friday, and reservations need to be made in advance. The Nutrition Program is federally-funded and is administered by Santa Clara County.
The Yu-Ai Kai Nutrition Program offers:
A suggested contribution for lunch is $3.00. Meal tickets are available. If anyone under the age of 60 years of age wishes to visit the Nutrition Program, they will be asked to pay $8.00 per meal.
Lunch is served at 12 noon. An exercise program, led by volunteers, is offered daily at approximately 11:30 a.m.
For seniors in the Japantown area, grocery shopping assistance is available twice a month. Call the Front Desk at (408) 294-2505 for sign ups and more information. Space is limited.
Yu-Ai Kai also works with Second Harvest Food Bank to assist low income seniors who need food. Please contact Social Services staff for more information on how to apply, qualifications, and other information.
