What we're about

Thank you for visiting our Meetup. We are very excited to have you join us. This meetup was formed by a group of friends who share a love of cooking and of serving the homeless. We are a Federally registered 501(c)3 focused on helping the homeless.

WISH Bay Area prepares meals and gathers toiletries and other things the homeless need, and distributes them to the homeless and under-served in the South Bay.

There are two parts to our program.

• Once a month we prepare casseroles for the Bill Wilson Drop In Center in San Jose. We post the recipe, you cook it at home, then bring it to us at the address in San Jose we provide for you. It is a great way to help teens that are literally living on the street. A range of services are available at this center.

• Another program takes place in downtown San Jose, where we distribute muffins every Sunday to the homeless. We are part of a larger distribution coordinated by the Tzu Chi Foundation, and international relief organization.

We look forward to you joining us to serve the homeless: We Invite you to Serve the Homeless (WISH).

Muffin Sunday

Church Parking Lot on 6th Street Downtown SJ

Give your Sunday morning special meaning by helping the homeless this Sunday. The homeless really appreciate our muffins and are so grateful to our volunteers. We hope you can support our program, because it is really nice to make a difference in people's lives. Please join us for another Muffin Sunday. Make or buy muffins, and help us hand them out. We work with Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi to serve a large group of homeless men and women in downtown San Jose. Please bring your muffins to the downtown location. If you can stay and help hand out food, we would love it. If not, please drop off the muffins at 7:15 to 7:30. Fouzia's house is for drop off on Saturday. That means if you would like to drop off muffins at her front doorstep on the Saturday before, you can! Just write a comment asking for her address, and we will send it to you. We hope you can join us! We really need the muffins, and the homeless are very grateful. Our goal is 150 muffins each Sunday morning. Thanks very much!
