Meals on Wheels
JSSA provides kosher low salt Meals on Wheels to residents of Montgomery County. Recipients must be over 60 years of age, homebound, unable to do their own shopping and/or cooking and not live with someone who can do the shopping or cooking for them.
Meals on Wheels drivers deliver more than 30,000 Kosher meals to frail seniors in our community. On weekday mornings, volunteers pick up the meals at the Hebrew Home in Rockville and deliver to about a dozen seniors each. Volunteers play a vital role in this critical program, which helps meet the nutritional needs of about 200 seniors who can't cook for themselves. Ideally, drivers volunteer for a weekly route (a route takes 1-3 hours); however, if you can't drive every week, you can form or be part of a team of drivers who share the weekly responsibility among themselves. On-call substitute drivers are also welcome.
