Alpert JCC & Jewish Long Beach would like to thank the 111 donors, and our partners MemorialCare, SCAN Health Plan, and the Grand for supporting Long Beach Gives. Thanks to their generosity, we exceeded our goal and raised enough money to feed over 9,000 meals to home-bound seniors.



It’s not too late to make an impact! Your continued support sustains our ongoing mission to bring meals to seniors.


We’re honored to share, in her own words, what the Senior Meal delivery program means to Stella, a 93-year-old retired nurse and lunch recipient in Long Beach. When you support Long Beach Gives, you are directly impacting lives like Stella’s for the better.

This Is How We Come Together!

What’s the best part about being part of our community? It’s the fact that when anyone needs help, WE are here! JCC Staff, members, donors, volunteers, and community partners, rise to the occasion in a moment’s notice. We are so lucky to have every single one of you be part of this. This is what being part of a community is all about. Watch this video to see just how everything comes together to make our Senior Adult Meal Delivery Program possible.

You Donate, We'll Pack it Up and Deliver!

Each week our wonderful volunteers from the community deliver nutritious meals to our senior adults. Before COVID-19, our popular Senior Wednesday Lunches provided the opportunity for seniors in our community to eat a healthy, well-balanced meal, and a time to socialize and be part of a group. When COVID-19 hit, we had to close our doors and stop all programming, including our Senior Wednesday Lunch program. We felt it was important to keep this service going through the pandemic and decided to bring the meals to our senior adult community directly to their homes!

Thank you to our partners!

Senior Meal Delivery is funded in part by SCAN Health Plan. One of the nation’s largest not-for-profit Medicare Advantage plans, SCAN is dedicated to keeping seniors healthy and independent. Visit scanhealthplan.com and independenceathome.org

We want to thank The Grand of Long Beach for their continued support with our Senior Adult Meal Delivery Program. They are such a great partner to the Alpert JCC!


The Grand is available for curbside food to pick up. Please check out their website HERE for their complete menu and how to order online.

Last year, MemorialCare of Long Beach  provided sponsorship of 2 meals per month for six months and they have renewed their commitment for the next 8 months. We are so grateful to everyone who has helped make the Senior Meal Program a success.
