Citymeals on Wheels
Meal Deliveries to Homebound, Older NYC Veterans
Citymeals on Wheels provides a continuous lifeline of nourishing meals and vital companionship to homebound elderly individuals across New York City. Their programs ensure that elderly New Yorkers receive both a meal every day of the year and frequent check-ins, which help make it possible for frail seniors to stay in their homes. Their weekend meals are an especially important tool in helping vulnerable older adults maintain food security. This grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation will fund the preparation and delivery of weekend meals for homebound, elderly veterans residing in New York City. With BWF funding, Citymeals on Wheels will provide over 37,000 weekend meals to 1,600 veterans across New York City.
