Having a proper diet is important to all people. It is the source of having good health and energy. King David Community Center (KDCC) gives this matter its utmost attention, and with the help of dieticians, ensures that its clients always receive delicious, healthy foods made from the highest quality ingredients.
It is important to note that with every meal, a person should get all the proper nutrients that the body requires in order to maintain healthy functions. Moderation is very important, and when this moderation is broken, illnesses can occur.
This is why it is very important that the foods ingested by the body, especially for seniors, be foods that are easily digested and accepted by the body. None of the food prepared at KDCC is packaged or processed. All meals are prepared daily from scratch by our professional chefs and kitchen staff in a clean and sanitary kitchen. Meals are always supplemented with fresh fruits, vegetables, as well fresh home-made bread.
Psychologists agree that a person eats better when he is surrounded by good company as opposed being alone, or depressed. Maintaining a proper schedule of eating is also very important, and KDCC makes sure that its clients are always on schedule to receive their daily meals, and to make sure they always eat in a friendly, social environment.
King David Community Center tries its best to ensure better lives for its seniors. With this in mind, they offer another service for its clients in home delivered meals. Because not all seniors can prepare meals for themselves, KDCC does it for them.
Clients have their own specialized charts where any and illnesses are listed to ensure they get meals that correspond to their health requirements. A dietician is always involved in creating appropriate and strict menus for clients who need special help in creating a menu that works best for their health. These menus are designed for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meal allowances can range anywhere from 2-3 all the way up to 14 meals per week, the amount of meals received all depends on the case managers and their recommendations.
Meals are delivered via special truck that has special coolers installed to maintain the freshness of the food. All deliveries are made according to schedule, and are directly to the homes of the seniors. All meals are vacuumed and sealed or put into disposable, microwaveable boxes for convenient heating.
Another way KDCC provides food for their clients is by providing them meals based on their national and cultural kitchens. Those of Russian descent get Russian food cooked by Russian chefs; those of Vietnamese descent get Vietnamese food cooked by Vietnamese chefs, etc. All this is done in order to provide its clients with comfort ability in knowing what they are eating.
