The Meal Partners Program brings Holocaust survivors together with community volunteers who engage with them through the sharing of meals.
Our goal is to build relationships, strengthen community, broaden the survivor’s support system, reduce isolation, and increase the survivors’ quality of life.
You, your family, or a circle of friends can volunteer to become meal partners. You will be matched with an individual survivor based on interests, background and proximity. Meals can be shared at home, in a restaurant, or in a community setting. You can even prepare a meal together if either partner enjoys cooking.
All volunteer Meal Partners receive special training and ongoing support so that they understand and can respond to the needs of survivors.
This program is made possible through a grant from the JFNA Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care.
