In partnership with the Jewish Endowment Foundation of Louisiana, Humana, Metairie Bank, the Consulate General of Israel to the Southwest, and generous individual donors, the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans is pleased to announce the expansion of the Greater New Orleans Jewish Community Healthcare Workers Take Home Meal Program to include East Jefferson General Hospital. This program currently serves Tulane Medical Center, Touro Infirmary and Ochsner Health System. Since its launch on April 21, the program has served 1,200 take home meals to frontline medical staff and healthcare workers and, over the expected eight-week program period, will serve in excess of 6,000 take home meals to these community heroes.

Three local kosher restaurants and caterers – Kosher Cajun, Rimon at Tulane Hillel, and Dvash Catering – are providing 200 healthy, delicious meals for the four hospital campuses each Tuesday, for a total of 800 meals per week.

The Jewish Federation is accepting donations to keep the program running past the expected eight-week window at:
