City Meals On Wheels

February 26, 2014 1:01 am

Citymeals-on-Wheels raises private funds to ensure no homebound elderly New Yorker will ever go a day without food or human company. Last year, our family of contributors helped us bring 2 million nutritious meals to 18,000 frail aged in every borough of New York City. In addition, more than 12,200 volunteers collectively spent 45,576 hours visiting and delivering meals to our neighbors.

Citymeals funds 33 community-based agencies that bring weekend, holiday and emergency meals to homebound elderly New Yorkers who can no longer shop or cook for themselves. In 2012, Citymeals added two new programs to ensure frail aged New Yorkers receive adequate nutrition. Citymeals expanded its Mobile Food Pantry service to Flushing and Cambria Heights Queens to now provide additional shelf-stable food to vulnerable elderly most at risk in those neighborhoods, the South Bronx, Upper Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn. In addition, Citymeals is partnering with GrowNYC to deliver fresh, locally-grown produce to meal recipients in Manhattan and Queens.
