For local seniors who have been missing the Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center’s Chef Donna Carullo’s cooking due to the coronavirus pandemic, their wait came to an end on June 1. That’s when the JCC started curbside pickup for its Senior Kosher Lunch Program. On this first day over 20 lunches were picked up by appreciative seniors. It was a happy occasion to see familiar faces once again after having been apart for over two months. You can’t tell from these photos, but everyone was smiling underneath their masks.
Curbside pickup for the JCC’s senior lunches runs Monday-Friday from 12-12:30 pm. There is a $4.25 suggested contribution per meal. Cash or JCC Senior Meal Coupon only are accepted. Reservations are required at least one business day before the meal date by calling 315-445-2360, ext. 100. Questions? Email Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The JCC’s Senior Kosher Lunch Program is funded in part by Onondaga County Adult and Long Term Care Services, New York State Office for the Aging, and the Jewish Federation of Central New York. Additional funds are provided by the JCC.
