Hayward Resident Featured in New National Ad Campaign for Meals on Wheels

July 29, 2016

HAYWARD - The City of Hayward provides access to a variety of supportive services related to aging and mobility. One such program is SOS Meals on Wheels, a local nonprofit, which cooks and delivers nutritious meals to frail, homebound seniors who are unable to purchase or prepare meals for themselves. SOS Meals on Wheel receives a grant from the Hayward Operated Paratransit (The HOP) program, which in turn is funded through Alameda County Measure B/BB sales tax dollars.

Lola Silvestri, a spry 94 year-old Hayward resident, is featured in a new national ad campaign for Meals on Wheels. Please view her story, and those of other Bay Area seniors, through this link. For more information about SOS Meals on Wheels please call 510.582.1263 or visit the website at
