Senior Programs



KCI is pleased to welcome two recent additions to our Board of Directors — Christy Ahn and Sarah Kim-Lee — and a new member of our volunteer pool, Katy Lee. We are grateful for their commitment and generous contributions of time and talent!

Please also check out our conversations with two local Korean restaurant partners — K-Elements BBQ and Namu — that participated in the Senior Meal Delivery Program.

KCI greatly appreciates the grant funding received from the Korean American Community Foundation of San Francisco (KACF-SF) to continue supporting the nutritional needs of Korean seniors in San Francisco during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We extend our heartfelt thanks to SF New Deal for generously funding the program for two months. During that time, KCI delivered 6,000 meals to 150 seniors, with the help of our amazing team of 53 volunteers.

In Our Community

KCI is grateful to the many organizations that have joined hands across the Bay Area to address the COVID-19 pandemic through the Bay Area K-Coalition: KACF-SF, Bay Area K Group (“Meal Forward”), KABANCKACS, KAPS, KCCEB, and Simple Steps.

We applaud the dozens of volunteers who are donating their time and talents to KCI and other organizations during these difficult times.
