JCC Senior Lunch and Learns kick off March 27

The JCC of Syracuse will kick off its monthly Senior Lunch and Learn program with a meeting on the topic of emergency preparedness. It will be held on Friday, March 27 from noon to 2 p.m. at the JCC on 5655 Thompson Rd. in DeWitt. The session will begin with a hot kosher lunch followed by guest speakers from the American Red Cross.

There is no cost to attend only the emergency preparedness guest speaker portion of the program which will start at 12:30 p.m. Registration is required. RSVP by calling 315-445-2040, ext. 104, by noon on March 26.

This first Lunch and Learn will focus on what seniors need to know to stay safe and properly prepare for various emergencies. A question and answer session will follow, and each attendee will receive a small goodie bag with some helpful emergency-related items.

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

The Lunch and Learns are an added once-a-month component to the JCC’s successful Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult Dining Program which offers kosher lunches weekdays at noon for a $3.50 suggested contribution per person. Each Lunch and Learn meeting will start at noon with the lunch portion and follow with the presentation at approximately 12:30 pm.

“Having guest speakers come in and share their expertise will be a wonderful addition to our lunches, and will make our program even more interactive a meaningful,” said Leesa Paul, the JCC of Syracuse’s director of adult and senior programming. “We are extremely appreciative of the Green Family Foundation for funding our Lunch and Learns to help empower local seniors with the knowledge to live better, more fulfilling lives.”

The JCC’s Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult Senior Dining Program offers seniors, age 60 and over, a delicious and well-balanced kosher meal weekdays at noon. It’s the only kosher dining 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.
