Klein JCC - Home Delivered Meals

Home Delivered Meals

A meal and so much more...

Volunteers support the program by providing a friendly visit, preparing for deliveries, and help to cook meals. There are over 20 cooking groups throughout the Delaware Valley who make meals in partnership with our Cook For a Friend program.

We maintain an inventory of meat, poultry, fish, dairy and vegetarian pasta meals throughout the year. Individuals may choose from these categories to customize their weekly delivery of 5-14 meals. The program includes baked goods, soup and a breakfast bag, when available.

The Cook For a Friend program is a community based program comprised of more than 500 volunteers who prepare and cook meals for homebound seniors.
