The JCC Lunch and Learn series was launched in March and offers 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 nutritious and well-balanced kosher meal weekdays at noon for a $3.50 suggested contribution. It’s the only senior nutrition program available outside of New York City 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. For more information, and to RSVP for a lunch, call 315-445-2360.
