Recipients

Individuals who are age 60 years or older and who are limited in meal preparation may be eligible to participate in the home-delivered meals program. Recipients are often nutritionally at-risk adults who may be disabled, living alone, or low-income earners.

If you know of anyone who would be appropriate as a recipient of our program, contact Kevin Perkins kperkins@erjcchouston.org or 713.595.8162 so that we can schedule an appointment to visit with and assess that senior. 

Meals

Our meals are either Standard American or Kosher and are delivered to a recipient’s home each weekday. Kosher meals are prepared in-house under supervision by the Houston Kashrut Association. Frozen meals may additionally be provided, as funding allows. Each meal provides at least one third of the nutritional recommended daily allowance for an individual.

Home delivered meals are offered through the Harris County Area Agency on Aging with funding from the Older Americans Act, the Texas Department of Agriculture Texans Feeding Texans Home-Delivered Meal Grant Program, the United Way of Greater Houston,  and the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston. Local funding and participant contributions supplement federal and state revenues.
