Gael Greene and James Beard founded Citymeals-on-Wheels in 1981 after reading a newspaper article about homebound elderly New Yorkers with nothing to eat on weekends and holidays. They rallied their friends in the restaurant community to raise private funds as a supplement to the government-funded weekday meal delivery program. Thirty-one years ago, their first efforts brought a Christmas meal to 6,000 frail aged.
During the past fiscal year, which ended June 30, 2012, Citymeals-on-Wheels delivered 1.8 million meals to nearly 17,000 New Yorkers at times when they would otherwise have been alone and hungry (www.citymeals.org).
