Citymeals on Wheels

Happy National Hat Day to our Co-Founder and hat lover, Gael Greene who's been the cornerstone of our work for 35 years. When Gael raised the first funds for what would become Citymeals, she insisted every cent go directly to preparing and delivering meals – and our 100% rule was born. Every dollar donated to Citymeals goes directly to nourishing the city's homebound elderly.

Thanks to our partnership with the Weinberg Center for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, we've trained our deliverers how to spot signs of elder abuse. With the city's growing elderly population, Citymeals is there to help prevent our frail aged neighbors from being exploited or harmed. http://ow.ly/nH6Q307Ga7J

Story
Introduction

Citymeals on Wheels provides a continuous lifeline of nourishing meals and vital companionship to New York City’s homebound elderly. Working in partnership with community-based organizations and senior centers, Citymeals prepares and delivers over 2 million weekend, holiday and emergency meals to more than 18,000 of our frail aged neighbors each year. Last year, over 15,000 individuals volunteered nearly 69,000 hours of their time.

Since its founding in 1981, Citymeals has relied on the generosity of its Board of Directors, the City of New York, sponsors and other designated gifts to cover administrative costs. This ensures that 100% of all public donations go directly to the preparation and delivery of meals.
