Goddard Riverside has reimagined its Holiday Meals to keep guests, volunteers and staff safe. Our hot, handmade meals will be delivered to homes or available for pickup on site; there will be no in-person dining this year.
Our Thanksgiving and Christmas meals have been a tradition for over 30 years. This volunteer-driven event is strongly supported by donations from the community and is free and open to all.
We are grateful to Mt. Sinai Urgent Care for their donation of hand sanitizer.
