Read the criteria below to find out if you or a loved one can receive meals. If eligible, enter the appropriate zip code to get contact information for the Case Management Agency nearest you. Your Case Management Agency will guide you through the process of getting meals.


    Must be 60 years of age or older


    Must be unable to prepare nutritious meals or have no one to do so for you


    Must be physically or mentally incapacitated and in need of some assistance


    Must be able to live safely at home if services are provided to you

Even if you receive homecare or Medicaid, you are still eligible to get meals if the homecare worker cannot prepare a meal to fit your dietary or religious restrictions, or if he or she is designated to assist only with other tasks.

If you are in need of groceries and able to leave home, visit FoodHelp NYC for a list of food pantries and community kitchens across the five boroughs.
