The Meal Partners program is off the ground and running with its first pairing of Holocaust survivors and community volunteers. The program brings survivors together with volunteers to share regular meals, expand the survivor's circle of support, and help with tasks that might be difficult to do without help. A lot goes into making matches, such as shared interests, proximity, and old-fashioned chemistry. Over 88 volunteers have come forward to participate. Go to this recent article in the LA times for more information and a great video.
This program is partially funded by Jewish Federations of North America's Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care. We need your support to match these funds. Donate Today
