Food for Though

It’s that time of the year – when just standing outdoors can be too uncomfortable. Summer heat particularly affects the homebound elderly.

As Mother’s Day approaches, I think of Mamie – the first Citymeals recipient I met. She lived in the same Brooklyn neighborhood as my grandmother.

Since 2013, I’ve been lucky enough to photograph many of our meal recipients. Meeting them and learning about their lives is always inspiring.
