Deliver Meals and Conversation


Deliver Meals and Conversation

Deliver both a restaurant-style lunch and some conversation to housebound seniors. Nothing accompanies a hot nutritious meal like a good chat! Working with your City Meals On Wheels team, you’ll use a hand truck to transport the meals for several blocks, including up and down stairs.



Since 1981, Citymeals-On-Wheels has provided homebound, elderly individuals with nutritious meals and human company. Located in the Turtle Bay neighborhood of Manhattan, Citymeals-On-Wheels reaches elderly New Yorkers in all five boroughs. It is one of the largest meals-on-wheels programs in the United States, delivering nearly two million meals to over 17,000 seniors every year. As a continuous lifeline of food and companionship, Citymeals-On-Wheels aims to enable its clients to live with dignity in their own familiar homes and communities.
