Our holiday boxes bring comfort and security, showing our recipients we will always be there when meal centers are closed for national and religious days of observance.
To prepare our frail aged neighbors for long holiday weekends, Citymeals delivers packages containing nonperishable meals. Our holiday boxes are delivered in advance of Labor Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Passover.
YOU PEOPLE ARE JUST WONDERFUL. WITH PASSOVER COMING UP YOU MADE SURE I GOT A PACKAGE OF GOODIES FOR MY HOLIDAY. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
- Gertrude, 91-year-old Citymeals recipient
While each holiday box typically includes three meals, for Passover we assemble packages filled with Kosher for Passover foods like poached salmon, beef brisket, stuffed cabbage, matzo, macaroons and grape juice – the equivalent of eight meals.
Citymeals provided 68,758 holiday boxes – a total of 226,394 meals – in Fiscal Year 2019.

100% of your donation will be used for the preparation and delivery of meals, thanks to our partnership with the New York City Department for the Aging, along with gifts from our board of directors and others designated for administrative expenses.
