Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ will be participating in “Cooking Companions” in collaboration with eight other JFS agencies in New Jersey. The program is generously supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and is a yearlong program serving seniors in Essex County.
The Cooking Companions program matches adult volunteers with frail, homebound older adults to provide meal preparation and companionship during meal time once a month. Volunteers will make monthly visits to their assigned older adult at their home. They will purchase and deliver the food, help prepare and share the meal with the older adult. JFS social workers will provide supervision and training.
