MEALS

JASA provides nutritious and life sustaining meals to seniors who are unable to shop or cook for themselves. Each year, JASA provides 940,000 kosher and non-kosher meals, served in group settings at our Senior Centers or delivered to the homes of homebound seniors through our home delivered meals programs.

GROUP MEALS

Seniors gather daily at JASA's 22 Senior Centers throughout New York City to enjoy both kosher and non-kosher hot, nutritious lunches and good conversation. Some of our centers also provide a healthy breakfast. JASA also offers these clients practical advice from trained nutritionists.

IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 HEALTH CRISIS, ALL NYC SENIOR CENTERS ARE CLOSED. GRAB-AND-GO MEALS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE AT SENIOR CENTERS.

HOW CAN I GET A MEAL?

As of March 31st, JASA Senior Centers will no longer provide "Grab-and-Go" meals based on the Department for the Aging's (DFTA) directives. DFTA instead has instituted a Centralized Meal Delivery system. Multiple meals now will be sent directly to the homes of older adults weekly. If you have not registered with one of JASA's Senior Centers in the past but would like to receive meals, please call the JASA Senior Center closest to you. If you do not live close to a JASA Senior Center, please consult this page to identify your local senior center: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/dfta/services/find-help.page
JASA's Help Center is also available to assist you at this time at help@jasa.org.

HOME DELIVERED MEALS

By providing delivery of nutritious and well-balanced meals, JASA ensures that our clients who are confined to their homes are receiving the vital nourishment necessary to be physically healthy and mentally alert. Kosher meals are available upon request. Through JASA's Case Management Program, potential clients are individually assessed and evaluated.

PASSOVER SEDERS

JASA conducts community Passover Seders for JASA clients who might not otherwise be able to observe the holiday. In the time-honored tradition of Passover, JASA brings together our homebound clients to take part in the Seder service before enjoying the traditional Passover meal*.

* Please Note: JASA also delivers special holiday meals to our home delivered meals clients.
