DOROT continues to offer our Kosher Meals at Home program without interruption during COVID-19. In response to increased demand, DOROT has significantly expanded the reach of the program, providing emergency food assistance to more seniors than ever before.
Kosher Meals at Home is available for seniors who have difficulty shopping and cooking for themselves, including previously independent seniors who are now discouraged from leaving their homes. Healthy, frozen, glatt kosher meals are hand-delivered four days a week and assistance in ordering groceries is also available. Seniors do not need to be kosher to participate.
Participants in Kosher Meals at Home connect directly with DOROT staff to share their meal preferences and any dietary restrictions. Additionally, participants receive a weekly check-in phone call from a caring volunteer to share support, conversation, and information on other programs and resources.
Emergency meals are available for older adults following kosher dietary laws who are recovering from an illness or just returning from a hospital stay and in urgent need of prepared food.
For more information on how to participate in the program or to make a referral, call (212) 769-2850 or e-mail us.
