Food for Though

I'll be thinking of the incredible older women Citymeals serves -- most will spend the day alone.

This Valentine’s Day, I’m thinking of the Citymeals recipients who have lost the people they have loved.

On Mother's Day, I'll be thinking of 101-year-old Josephine who dedicated her life to caring for children.

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.
