Young Professionals

For years, members of the city’s young professional community have regularly volunteered with Citymeals in order to serve their homebound elderly neighbors. In 2013, the Citymeals Young Professionals Committee (YPC) was established to provide a framework through which they could focus their efforts.

The Young Professionals Committee consists of a group of dynamic professionals who raise money and awareness through events and volunteer activities.

The YPC is co-chaired by Byron Athans and Danielle Valenti Smith.

Volunteer Outings

Young Professionals deliver meals to isolated older New Yorkers every other Saturday of each month with deliveries led by members of the YPC. Afterwards, brunch at a nearby restaurant allows them to become better acquainted.


Join Citymeals Young Professionals on July 19th as they watch the Yankees face off against the Baltimore Orioles, all from the comfort one of Yankee Stadium’s exclusive suites. Get your Early Bird Tickets – available through June 30th – for only $85. The ticket price will increase to $100 on July 1st. Ballpark fare, beer and wine are included in the price of each ticket.
