The City Meals on Wheels organization began delivering prepackaged meals to seniors in need in New York City.

This group of volunteers is dedicated to helping people over the age of 60 who have trouble getting or cooking their own food.

Starting June 7 and for the next two weeks, the organization will deliver some 45,000 meals to some 22,000 seniors across the state.

They point out that many older adults lack food security, for this reason they are given support.

Last year they delivered about 2 million meals.

Who qualifies to receive the meals?

According to the organization’s criteria, individuals must meet the following requirements:

  • Being over 60 years old.
  • You must be unable to prepare your food or have no one to help you.
  • Being able to live safely in your home if help is provided.
  • Live in one of the 5 New York boroughs.

Since December 2022, the New York Government announced that it will invest three million dollars to support associations that provide free help to immigrants. Among the free legal services they provide are immigration-related issues and assistance with filing applications and appearances.
