Did you know that our Meals on Wheels program provides free nutritious kosher meals three times a week to 620 Jewish seniors living in poverty who struggle daily with food insecurity? In the past year, the Bernard Betel Centre’s Kosher Meals on Wheels program provided close to 156,000 meals to the community.
The need for funding for our Meals on Wheels program is critical. Without funding, these vulnerable seniors will go without food and support, and sadly, will likely die. While the need for Meals on Wheels are not new, the community has been unaware of these vulnerable seniors and the full magnitude and scope of the problem. These seniors face many barriers to accessing service and have limited, if any, supports in the community. They are isolated and feel forgotten. The Bernard Betel Centre’s Meals on Wheels is more than a meal. It serves as a “lifeline” to our vulnerable homebound seniors and Holocaust survivors living in poverty.
Seniors are going hungry. We desperately need your help to feed them.
