Nutrition

The Jewish Community Center’s Senior Program is all about keeping seniors healthy and helping them stay as independent as they can for as long as they can. In addition to providing stimulating and interesting programs, day trips and longer adventures and exercise opportunities for all, an important part of the program is nutritition.

Five days a week, the JCC Senior Adult Program offers hot, kosher congregate meals at noon in the Senior Adult Lounge on the lower level of the Jewish Community Center. Each meal is nutritionally balanced. The Senior Adult Program suggests that diners make a donation of $2 per meal. Additional donations are welcome. Transportation can be arranged. Call 502-238-2743 for reservations. Click here to see this month’s bulletin, “Senior Times,” that includes the daily menu.

The Senior Adult Program also offers home delivered hot, kosher meals once a day, five days a week, through the Meals-on-Wheels program. For additional information, contact Nutrition Manager Director Natalie Kusyo, 502-238-2743 or nkusyo@jewishlouisville.org.

Title III of the Older Americans Act provides Federal funding that enables the Senior Adult Department to operate a dining facility and provide delivered meals for senior adults. Funds for this project are administered by Louisville Metro Human Services, KIPDA, Metro United Way, The Jewish Federation of Louisville and the Jewish Community Center. Our nutrition program is also partially funded by MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger and a grant from the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence.

The Jewish Community Center Nutrition Site is the only kosher site in the State of Kentucky. Title III also provides for counseling, outreach and health related activities for our program participants. All participants who receive health-related counseling or outreach services will be given an opportunity to make a voluntary donation. The Jewish Community Center does not discriminate against anyone because of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
