Changing Lives… Building Communities

Food Assistance

Hunger is pervasive in Brooklyn and Queens.  It challenges young and old alike. Catholic Charities provides support to elderly homebound, women, infants and children, and families.

Home-Delivered Meals

Accordion Down Chevron

Each year Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens provides more than 500,000 meals to the homebound elderly, in addition to a full range of case management services. If you are 60 years old or older and homebound, or know someone who is, and would like a home-delivered meal please give us a call. We provide one hot meal and one cold pack to clients to improve the quality of life for seniors. Meals include Kosher, non-Kosher and Korean meals.
