David's story

"Jewish Care brings me food, friendship and hope."


For fifty five years, David lit the candles with his beloved wife Sally. When she passed away, he was very lonely. Then he met Sid. Sid delivers David’s Meals on Wheels, but he brings more than delicious three-course hot Kosher dinners. Every time he comes, he brings the miracle of friendship too. 

“David was with his wife for fifty-five years. When she passed away, he lost his best friend. And now he’s got to cook for himself too. That’s why with Meals on Wheels from Jewish Care, it’s about more than delivering a delicious Kosher meal. It’s also about taking the time for a chat every time we call. It’s about friendship. That can make all the difference”. Sid Green, Meals on Wheels volunteer.

David is only one of the 10,000 people of Jewish Care whose lives we touch every week of the year.
