The program prepares meals that meet special requests including Asian, vegetarian, lactose and low sodium diets. Clients also have the option of Glatt Kosher meals. We will be expanding to offer Halal meals as well.
Along with a nutritious meal our delivery staff provide a friendly check-in for seniors who often will see no one in their homes.
We partner with United Jewish Organizations (UJO) of Williamsburg and the Polish Slavic Center in Greenpoint to provide ethnically appropriate meals in Community District #1, and we subcontract with Shalom Senior Center in Crown Heights to provide Glatt Kosher Meals in their community. Weekday meals are provided through funding from The New York City Department for the Aging. The home delivered weekend meals are provided under contract with Citymeals-on-Wheels.
