Food Vouchers for the Elderly UPDATE....and the young
More than 10% of seniors in the United States go hungry every night. Since Middlesex County has one of the highest populations of seniors in the country, that number is only higher. And we at JSS know, in contrast to popular belief, there are poor Jews...and especially poor elderly Jews. Every month we send between $1000 and $1500 in food vouchers to members of our community. They are the elderly and they are families with children. We will not knowingly allow anyone in our community to go to bed hungry.. Our supporters at the Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey continue to provide a generous grant to support this program at its current level. Not a monthe passes when we don't receive thanks from members of our community. In many cases the $50 gift card is the difference between going to bed hungry or not.
