Luncheons & Breakfasts
Eight themed luncheons, six breakfasts, and three pizza parties are held each year for invited clients to enjoy a meal, gather with old friends, and enjoy some entertainment. Nearly 80 attend each luncheon and transportation is provided if necessary. If you would like to join us, please call and leave your name, address and telephone number and we will be in touch. Maintaining involvement in the community enables our residents to support one another and help ease feelings of loneliness, isolation and depression.
Round-trip transportation is provided to medical appointments and ongoing medical treatments for those who have no other means available, with two days advance notice. We provide emotional support and encouragement to clients dealing with serious illness, particularly in the absence of immediate family.
Meals At Home
A hot meal is delivered Monday through Friday to village residents living alone who are unable to prepare a meal and those who are recovering from an illness or surgery. In addition to providing a healthy, nutritious diet, the Meals At Home program guarantees a daily check on our community members to ensure their health and safety, along with face-to-face interaction. Over approximately 350 meals are delivered every month and over 300,000 meals have been delivered to-date.
Each Thanksgiving, Christmas/Chanukah and Easter/Passover holiday, food baskets are given to people in need. Through the generosity of community members, schools and the local businesses, our food drives provide all the ingredients for a traditional holiday meal, plus food supplies for a week, to approximately 40 families each holiday. A stock of nonperishable items and food coupons also enables us to respond to emergency calls for food throughout the year.
