WHY WHEELS FOR MEALS?
In Mercer County, 1 in 12 individuals are hungry.
JFCS maintains an array of hunger prevention programs to address food insecurity:
On-site brick-and-mortar pantry open 5 days a week
Two Mobile Food Pantry vehicles making more than 25 stops per month
Kosher Cafe serving hot lunches to low-income seniors 4 days a week
Kosher Meals on Wheels delivering weekly meals to homebound seniors
Food insecurity is an ongoing issue in our community and has become a more urgent problem over the course of the pandemic. The annual inflation rate is the highest it’s been in 40 years. Food prices are experiencing a similar increase. Families who have been struggling to make ends meet are impacted disproportionately by these circumstances.
