Citymeals on Wheels
Preparation and Delivery of Meals to Homebound, Elderly 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 daily meal and frequent check-ins to provide opportunities for social connection. Citymeals on Wheels’ weekend meal delivery programming is an especially important tool in helping vulnerable older adults maintain food security. This grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation will fund Citymeals on Wheels to prepare and deliver weekend meals to 1,600 homebound, elderly veterans residing in New York City.
