Need rec for delivery for shut-in & his son in oakland

Wonderful guy who is quite ill, and his teen-aged son, need to have some really good food delivered in Oakland. Any suggestions? Several of us are going to take turns sending him dinners. Thanks!

  1. If you tell us the area, we might know some places. Delivery is limited to regions of the city. Does the teenager drive? Lots of take out places.

    Try Meals on Wheels. I think they only work with seniors. But they might refer you to another support group.

    1. Thanks, Janet... The area is Sunnyhills Rd in Oakland. I was told to try Pastino's, but I can't get an answer on that telephone and I'm wondering if it's still around. Unfortunately, teenager is only 13 and doesn't drive. I live in San Fran and am trying to do this across the Bay. Thanks for everyone's help. Cyd

      1. If I am reading my mapquest correctly, that location is not far from Champa Gardens, which I consider to be one of the better restaurants in Oakland. Here is a recent report:

        I don't know if they deliver, but worth a call.

        Binh Minh Quan may deliver, which would also be a great option.

        Shan Dong in Oakland's Chinatown delivers:

        Good luck!

        1. Maybe you could get a personal chef to make meals and leave them in the home. I'm not familiar with any, but it would be of great help for the sick dad to have a couple of meals ready to go in the fridge or freezer.

          1. There is a company called Jessie et Laurent that does some excellent meals. I'm not sure if they deliver to Oakland however.
