In 1983, JFS received a grant from Senior Services of South Eastern Virginia to help underwrite the “Meals on Wheels” program. Since then, JFS has provided thousands of meals to individuals who otherwise might not have access to nutritious foods. JFS has the only kosher Meals on Wheels program in our community!
The Kosher Meals on Wheels program is available to home-bound adults age 60 or over who are unable to grocery shop or unable to prepare meals for themselves. This program is subsidized through a partnership with Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia and generous private donors.
JFS’ kosher Meals on Wheels program is available for residents in Norfolk and Virginia Beach, regardless of race, religion, or economic status. Eligibility for the program is defined by the Title III and IV of the Older Americans Act.
To enroll in the program, an agency Case Manager will come to your home to meet with you.
