Activity Directions

  • When you arrive, enter & exit the ERJCC parking lot through the main entrance on Atwell, at the gate closest to S. Braeswood.
  • Park & enter through the main lobby entrance. Tell them you are here for Meals on Wheels. You will pick up your grocery bags (two per client).
  • Client names and address will be provided at the time of meal pickup along with any special instructions.
  • Deliveries take 1-2 hours. No need to return to the JCC after the delivery
  • Delivery Note: If a client isn't home when you deliver, please make sure to call them in case they can't hear the door. If you can't reach them, you can leave the groceries at the front door because they are getting all pantry staples that do not require refrigeration.
