The JCC Lunch and Learn series was launched on March 27 and is designed to offer individuals age 60 and older useful and timely information on a range of issues facing seniors. The free monthly meetings feature local professionals covering topics on health, wellness, finances, legal matters, caregiving and more. This new JCC program is funded by a grant from the Green Family Foundation.

The JCC’s Lunch and Learns are an added once-a-month component to its successful Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult Dining Program, which offers seniors, age 60 and over, a delicious, well-balanced kosher meal weekdays at noon for a $3.50 suggested contribution. It’s the only senior nutrition program available in Upstate New York serving kosher meals five days per week. The program is funded in part by the Onondaga County Department of Aging and Youth and the New York State Office for the Aging and Administration for Community Living.
