A victory for seniors in San Jose

For the last several years low-income seniors who rely on community centers for healthy meals have been subjected to cold, undercooked entrees, mushy vegetables, and stale bread. No more.

Thanks to the efforts of the Sacred Heart United Seniors Action Committee (USAC), Santa Clara and San Jose have teamed up to fund onsite cooking at all city-run centers, including the Alma and Gardner centers, both in the Sacred Heart neighborhood.

"Seniors deserve freshly cooked food that tastes good," says committee member Pat Farrow. "They've contributed to the betterment of society their whole lives."

Under the new arrangement, food will be prepared fresh each day, onsite, with special attention made to the dietary needs and palates of the seniors at individual sites.

The USAC's campaign was supported by Working Partnerships.
