Visiting Anne Stern at her modest one-bedroom West Hollywood apartment, you quickly learn that she is very proud of her artwork. On the walls of her apartment hang her creative accomplishments - a prize-winning collage, an oil landscape, tiny acrylic still lifes of a covered challah and flower bouquets - all of which she is eager to talk about in her charming British lilt, a vestige of her Wembly upbringing. What Stern, in her mid-80's, might not tell you up front is that she has spent many years living alone on a fixed income, and is a recipient of Jewish Family Service's (JFS) Home Delivered Meals, a quarter-century-old program that delivers seven balanced entrees a week to homebound seniors. Last week, with the help of Israel Humanitarian Foundation (IHF), JFS greatly modernized its program by purchasing a supply of microwaves that will be given to more than 300 senior citizens in the program.
