CSA offers food items including fresh dairy and produce to those in need. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CSA’s Food & Nutrition Center is open three days/week so individuals and families can receive nutritious food to stretch their budgets and minimize food-insecurity. Nutrition education, healthy eating and shopping habits are emphasized through workshops, flyers and recipes.
CSA has a staff of geriatric social worker/case managers to provide in-home assessments, counseling and referrals for community resources to help seniors live independently in their own homes and avoid premature institutionalization and/or unnecessary hospitalizations. For seniors with chronic health conditions, we offer intensive case management in partnership with El Camino Hospital with a specialized social worker, an RN case manager, and an LVN case manager. We also offer Community Outreach volunteers to provide escorted transportation and shopping assistance.
CSA provides hot and nutritious subsidized lunches for anyone over 60 years old, 5 days/week at the Mountain View Senior Center in partnership with both Santa Clara County’s Aging and Adult Service Department and with the City of Mountain View. Entertainment, dancing, bingo, health and nutrition education is offered both before and after the lunch program. Check the monthly calendar for daily menus and activities.
The Outreach and Engagement Department’s mission is to provide leadership to ensure all programs and services are made accessible to our most vulnerable communities. We accomplish this by training trusted leaders within these communities, so they can help their neighbors, families, and friends navigate CSA programs and services. We also have assigned staff who are working directly in the field and are connecting potential clients to needed services. In addition to our direct work, we partner with other organizations to provide FREE educational workshops centralized on immigration, tenant rights, and domestic violence to bring accurate and trusted information to the general community.
