Description: Every Saturday morning meals are prepared and delivered for our homebound clients for Saturday as well as Sunday. This Saturday meal delivery also serves as a weekend status check and a friendly visit for clients who receive few, if any, visitors. Meals are delivered on foot to clients living between 69th and 79th Streets, between Fifth Avenue and the East River. Volunteers deliver in pairs or groups and generally visit 4-8 clients. Volunteers should be able to carry 5-10 pounds and walk up several flights of stairs comfortably since some clients live in walk-up buildings.

Organization: The Carter Burden Center for Aging

The Burden Center for the Aging, Inc. promotes the well-being of elderly residents of the Upper East Side of Manhattan through a broad array of direct social services and volunteer programs oriented to individual, family and community needs.
