Our updated response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
SSJCS continues to monitor the situation in our state and to follow state and federal guidelines. We are planning to resume our daily home-delivered meal schedule shortly with recommended safeguards in place to protect the health of our clients, staff, and volunteers. We will continue to provide frozen and shelf-stable meals which eliminate the side-by-side production and assembly process. As our state continues to re-open, we are also working on a safe plan to begin serving Community Dining meals again and will provide updates as these plans develop further. Our thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding as we continue to navigate these uncertain waters. Please Click Here for a previous press release regarding COVID-19 response.
VOLUNTEERED HOURS IN 2019
Our caring volunteers dedicate several hours every week to bringing food and comfort to older adults in their community. Together we’ve done a lot. But there’s always more to do.
MEALS DELIVERED/ WEEK
We serve nutritious meals to thousands of older adults every day with a variety of options. Our meals meet one third of the daily nutrition requirements for older adults and provide 3 oz of protein, 2 servings of fruit/vegetables, whole grain baked product, dessert, and milk.
OLDER ADULTS WELCOME
We proudly serve our healthy meals to all homebound, older and disabled adults, regardless of immigration or refugee status, ethnicity/race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
In addition to our home delivery service, we operate dozens of dining centers throughout Hillsborough county. We invite all older adults to come and enjoy fresh, healthy lunches at any of our congregate dining sites Monday through Friday.
