RiseBoro provides home-delivered meals to homebound seniors in multiple Brooklyn communities, including: Bushwick, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Bedford Stuyvesant, Fort Green, Crown Heights, East New York, Oceanhill, Canarise, Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Park Slope, and Red Hook. Hot meals are prepared and delivered for 5 days per week and a chilled meal is delivered for Saturday and Sunday. For clients that want an option of having frozen meals delivered so they can go to appointments like dialysis we deliver 7 frozen meals as per their requested delivery days.

The program prepares meals that meet special requests including Asian, vegetarian, lactose and low sodium diets.  Clients also have the option of Glatt Kosher meals. We will be expanding to offer Halal meals as well. 

Along with a nutritious meal our delivery staff provide a friendly check-in for seniors who often will see no one in their homes.  

We partner with United Jewish Organizations (UJO) of Williamsburg and the Polish Slavic Center in Greenpoint to provide ethnically appropriate meals in Community District #1, and we subcontract with Shalom Senior Center in Crown Heights to provide Glatt Kosher Meals in their community. Weekday meals are provided through funding from The New York City Department for the Aging. The home delivered weekend meals are provided under contract with Citymeals-on-Wheels.
