The San Mateo County Health Foundation has launched a Meal Train campaign for the San Mateo County Medical Center to support medical frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The campaign requires meals to feed 25 adults for breakfast at 6 a.m., 50 adults for lunch at noon, and 40 adults for dinner at 7 p.m.

Community members must purchase healthy food options from stores and restaurants including Whole Foods Deli, Mendocino Farms, and Pizza My Heart Pizza. Home cooked meals are prohibited to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Currently, the hospital prohibits visitors from entering the facilities. Individuals with deliveries must follow a “No contact” delivery by placing food in trunk and open for retrieval. Once at the hospital, they must contact John Jurow at and 650 333-5634, or Phuong Hathaway as a hospital representative will retrieve the delivery.
