Citymeals-on-Wheels also operates a second meals program, to help those relying solely on their one-meal a day to ensure that no seniors are nutritionally at risk. The Friendly Visiting Program and other volunteer activities aim to provide comfort and lighten the loneliness of the seniors served. Citymeals delivers weekend meals, holiday meals and holiday food boxes during the times that government offices are closed and the homebound would otherwise not have a meal delivered. Citymeals also delivers emergency food packages to provide security for the vulnerable elderly through the harsh winter months.
