Kosher meals are prepared under supervision by the Houston Kashrut Association. Frozen meals may additionally be provided, as funding allows. Each meal provides at least one third of the nutritional recommended daily allowance for an individual.

In-home assessment by a JFS case manager may be required to establish eligibility for the Meals on Wheels Program.
