South Orange Senior Residence is Host Site for Essex County Kosher Congregate Nutrition Program; JESPY Participants Gain Life Skills as They Assist with Senior Lunches
SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – Twice a week, seniors from South Orange enjoy nutritious lunches and opportunities to socialize at Village Apartments of the Jewish Federation. The senior living community, located in the heart of South Orange Village, is a host site for the Essex County Kosher Congregate Nutrition program, organized by the JCC of MetroWest NJ. Helping to make those meals happen are clients and residents of JESPY House, also in South Orange, which offers vocational assistance and life skills training to adults with developmental and learning disabilities.
JESPY House participants obtain work experience performing various jobs at Village Apartments, including help to set up, serve and clean up at the congregate lunches.
