Meals Delivery

Because nutritious food is essential to maintaining strength, health, and general well-being, meal delivery is integral to our Disabilities Program.

Those who have a chronic illness or physical disability that prevents them from shopping and/or cooking may benefit from our program, which includes:

Kosher Meals on Wheels

A program of JFCS’ Seniors At Home, Kosher Meals on Wheels is a resource for seniors who have a longstanding tradition of observing the dietary laws of kashrut. If eligible, a nutritionally balanced, hot, kosher meal can be delivered to homebound seniors, Monday through Friday.

Chicken Soupers

People with AIDS, chronic illness, or disabilities can receive freshly prepared meals twice each month, courtesy of our Chicken Soupers volunteers who work in collaboration with other organizations to cook, package, and deliver hearty meals. San Francisco collaborating synogogues include, Congregation Sherith Israel and Congregation Beth Sholom, and Peninsula collaborating organizations include, Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School, Congregation Beth Am, and Peninsula Temple Sholom.

Food Pantry

JFCS also invites those who are experiencing hard times as a result of the current economic crisis to take advantage of JFCS’ Food Pantry, which is stocked with highly nutritious canned and boxed items, such as tuna fish, peanut butter, beans, soups, grains, and pasta. A JFCS Food Pantry is located in each of the five Bay Area counties we serve: Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Sonoma.
