Roosevelt Island Senior Center Stirs with Grab & Go Frozen Meals, Starting Monday


Last week, the Carter Burden Network announced that Grab & Go meals would return on Monday, May 24th. Operating twice each week, it’s the first significant activity at the CBN/RI Senior Center since the start of the pandemic.

CBN Director Lisa Fernandez said that the Department for the Aging (DFTA) is taking a cautious approach for reopening senior centers. But hopes are high for a full return, this summer.

In March, Carter Burden opened the Senior Center as a hugely successful vaccination pop up, but it’s been largely idle otherwise since last spring.

Frozen meals will be handed out between Noon and 1:00 on Mondays and Thursdays. Anyone needing a meal must wear a face mask and observe social distancing requirements.

The CBN/RI Senior Center is located at 546 Main Street, inside Roosevelt Landings.
