Foodmobile provides hot, kosher, home-delivered meals to homebound older adults and younger adults with disabilities. Friendly volunteers deliver meals daily and sometimes even deliver pet food when requested. All volunteers are trained to conduct a safety inspection and report any concerns back to our professional and caring staff.

Frozen meals are available for weekends and holidays, and for areas that do not receive delivery service on a daily basis. Meals are delivered between 10:30am–1:30pm.

For more information about Foodmobile or to receive services, call (858) 637-3230.

You Can Provide a Hot, Home-Delivered Meal
To a San Diego Senior Facing Hunger

Volunteer>>

Each weekday, JFS Foodmobile relies on the dedicated service of more than 50 volunteer drivers to deliver hot, kosher meals to local seniors.

These meals provide our older adults with vital nutrition, as well as a meaningful connection to our community. Many seniors say that receiving meals gives them a reason to get up and get dressed each morning, because "company is coming."

How much does Foodmobile cost?

Meals are $7 for a 3oz protein portion and $8 for a 5oz protein portion, including frozen meals. Meals must be cancelled by 8:00am to avoid charges. Fees are available on a sliding scale for those who qualify. For specific service regions and individuals who meet specialized criteria, the home delivered meals program is partially sponsored by the Older American’s Act with a grant from the County of San Diego, Aging & Independence Services. Those meals are provided for a suggested donation of $4 for adults 60+.
