Holidays can be especially difficult for many of our meal recipients who live alone and are isolated. When senior centers must close, Citymeals delivers festive hand-delivered meals on major holidays, reminding our older neighbors they haven’t been forgotten.
Citymeals also hosts special celebrations at meal centers for those seniors able to leave their homes. From festive Thanksgiving lunches of turkey with all the trimmings to Fourth of July gatherings with summertime fare, we provide older New Yorkers the chance to enjoy a special meal and socialize with friends within their own communities.
Last year we provided 87,856 meals for Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year’s Day, Lunar New Year, and Mother’s Day.
