FOOD PROGRAMS

Hot Meals

  It is hard to overestimate the importance of this program for the Hesed clients. While most of them are pensioners or disabled living under the poverty rate, daily adequate kosher meals 5 days a week is a great support for them. Lunches do not mean only food but also a chance to socialize, find new friends, share memories, talk about their plans for the future and listen to Jewish songs. And Kabbalat Shabbat is a special occasion. It is really a day when the Tradition comes to them.

Meals on Wheels

  Unfortunately among the Hesed clients there are people who are unable to come to soup kitchens because of their illnesses, disability or advanced age. In this case Hesed comes to them. Couriers, volunteers bring not only hot meals, but also the joy of communication and important information. Sometimes people due to their illnesses cannot read newspapers or watch TV. Volunteers always tell the clients about the life in Jewish Community. "I will be waiting for you tomorrow", - people usually say after visits. The visits are important for both clients and program staff. The program supports 10 clients.

Food Packages

  The main aim of this program is to provide the clients with adequate food. Food packages consist of basic vital food stuff rich in calories. Attention and care are also very important for the clients; that's why every food package contains "Davar" newspaper and the information about forthcoming Jewish holidays. Those clients who unable to come and pick their own package get them at home through volunteer service.
