This letter was sent to us by a couple who depends on Jewish Community Services Senior Meals Program for food sufficiency. Older adults who are unable to leave their homes due to illness or frailty may be eligible to have JCS come directly to them. Our Meals on Wheels program delivers nutritious kosher lunches to homebound seniors in Miami-Dade.

I wanted to write you and tell you what gifts you are giving us.

My husband is almost 92. I am 87. We have enjoyed most of our 66 years together. We have a quiet mundane life. We start the day by playing Rummy-Q. We both have Dementia; this game is a joy and helps us to gauge our memories.

We eat very little; mostly we share one TV dinner. Our biggest treat is eating your Meals on Wheels. They are nutritious, well-balanced and very delicious. The driver is great in helping carrying and opening the boxes for us.

We are most grateful to JCS. I don’t know how we could manage without your help.
