Meet Caryn, kosher meal deliverer
When her mother moved to South Florida, Caryn needed someone to look after her. She soon learned that homebound seniors could receive kosher meals delivered right to their doors.
Caryn took the program into her own hands: she began delivering meals to not only her mother, but hundreds of other homebound seniors in the area. Through the program, Caryn has not only delivered food to these people who are sometimes alone for long periods of time – she is bringing them companionship.
“If I didn’t visit these people to deliver them meals, they would not have any interaction with the outside world,” she said. “These people always thank me when I leave. But I have them and this program to thank for giving me the opportunity to improve homebound seniors’ quality of life.”
