NYC Department for the Aging (DFTA) is making it possible for seniors to have meals delivered to their homes. Direct delivery includes a five-meal package delivered to each older adult every week. Because of this direct home delivery Grab-and-Go meals will no longer be offered at the centers.
Homebound older adults already receiving home-delivered meals through DFTA’s case management agencies will continue as usual. Those interested in signing up should call to see if they are eligible for home-delivered services by calling DFTA’s Aging Connect at 212-AGING-NYC (212-244-6469) or calling 311.
If you want to call the senior center in your area directly to find out how you can have meals delivered to your home, go to this link to find the senior centers in your area.
