Kosher Meals on Wheels - Scranton
This program, in cooperation with Meals on Wheels Office of Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania, delivers kosher meals to those in need. Kosher Meals on Wheels are available to those people in our community who adhere to Kosher dietary requirements. Kosher Meals on Wheels provides adequate, well-balanced, home delivered meals to homebound people who are unable to shop for and unable to prepare meals for themselves. The meals are prepared at the Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania under Kosher dietary guidelines. Meals may be meat or dairy and are based on a four-week menu cycle. Recipients may request 1 or 2 daily meals. Kosher Meals on Wheels is able to accommodate most special diets, such as diabetic, low salt, low fat, chopped, etc. The meals are fully cooked but are cold when delivered each day. The recipient can re-heat the meal in the oven or toaster oven after the lid is removed. The meal can also be transferred from the foil container to a microwave-safe plate for microwave heating. Volunteers who deliver the meals are interviewed and screened by Jewish Family Service. These volunteers not only bring a nutritious meal to your home, but also provide a friendly greeting and an important safety check for each individual who receives a meal.
