Home Delivered Meals
Since 1977, Encore has prepared and delivered meals to thousands of frail homebound seniors in the Midtown/ Times Square Area of Manhattan. In 2009, after Encore was awarded a Home Delivered Meals contract by the NYC Dept. for the Aging, Encore became responsible for providing over 1100 meals each day to homebound seniors on the West Side of Manhattan from 14th Street to 110th Street, from 8th Ave to the River and select areas of midtown. Encore is assisted in this work by Goddard Riverside Community Center Home Delivered Meals Program located in upper Manhattan, and provides hot regular meals to homebound seniors north of 62nd Street.
Encore also sub-contracts with Henry Street Settlement House on the Lower East Side to provide meals to homebound seniors residing in Community Board 5, the same Community Board in which Encore Senior Center is located.
