Thanksgiving deliveries being organized for SF’s homebound seniors

While GLIDE and St. Anthony’s both have robust, free Thanksgiving meals on offer, they’re only available to those who make it to the food kitchens in person.

Luckily San Francisco’s low-income seniors, many of whom are stuck at home due to disabilities, will still get Thanksgiving this holiday season. Meals on Wheels plans to deliver 500 grocery bags to seniors on Thanksgiving Eve, and 500 ready-made meals on Thanksgiving Day. In addition, a group of law enforcement agencies—including SFFD, SFPD and the Sheriff’s Department—will be teaming up to prepare and deliver meals to senior citizens at home along 30 routes throughout the city.
