Food for Thought

Staten Island upholds a rich tradition of generosity through donation and volunteerism.  With the cold weather upon us, as well as the holidays, the aged, disabled and less fortunate among us become vulnerable to hunger and social isolation.  Keep reading to learn about local organizations making a difference.

Citymeals on Wheels, a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity, on Staten Island alone, delivered 71,005 meals to 1,289 homebound elderly in 2018.  It is not uncommon for families to volunteer together, handing down the spirit of generosity and service to the next generation.  100% of donations are used for the preparation and delivery of meals, thanks to a partnership with the New York City Department for the Aging, along with gifts from its board of directors and others designated for administrative expenses.  The organization sponsor’s a wide variety of programs including Holiday Boxes, emergency meals, handmade cards, and senior chat.
