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 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 the preparation and delivery of weekend meals for homebound, elderly veterans residing in New York City. With this BWF grant, Citymeals on Wheels will deliver 37,500 weekend meals to homebound, older veterans residing in New York City.
