October 23, 2017

On Thursday, October 26th, local seniors will join Food Bank For New York City at its Community Kitchen & Pantry in Harlem to celebrate the Senior Center’s fifth anniversary, with a hors d’oeuvres, karaoke and a dance competition. Over the last five years, the Center has grown into a tight-knit community and provides vital support for nearby residents over the age of 60.

The Senior Center, founded in 2012, provides hot sit-down breakfasts and dinners on weekdays and take-home meals for the weekend, using recipes that take into account health conditions common among seniors. The Center also offers a variety of additional services, including benefits assistance, wellness workshops, daily recreational activities, and fitness classes, like yoga and zumba.
