SAN JOSE (BCN) – San Jose community members who have faced hardships due to COVID-19 can participate in the city’s food relief program, city officials announced.

Since Oct. 21, the city of San Jose has partnered with Off The Grid and Veggielution to provide a free food delivery service to any community members at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19, and individuals who have suffered from employment or business interruptions due to the pandemic.

The program delivers free groceries including fresh produce, whole grains and protein, weekly through Dec. 30.

Individuals participating in another food program such as CalFresh are not eligible for this relief program.
