Goddard Riverside Community Center

The community Christmas dinner takes place December 25 beginning at 11:30am until 3:00pm.

Interested in volunteering this Christmas? Our Holiday Meals committee would love to have your support! Learn more here. Interested in donating for our meals? We gratefully accept food donations for Christmas, as well as financial donations to support our event. Learn more here.

As it has for decades, the community center will provide a free hot meal, made and served by hundreds of smiling volunteers. For those who face mobility challenges, the holiday meal will be distributed by our Home Delivered Meals program.

The kitchen at 593 Columbus Ave starts humming early that day, as volunteers chop 50 pounds of celery and dice mountains of onions. Others hang decorations, put tablecloths in place, and arrange fresh flowers for a festive atmosphere. More than 1,000 guests are expected to pour through the dining room before the day is over.

With one out of five New Yorkers living in poverty, and many more struggling to afford high rents, the Christmas meal remains a haven for some of the city’s most vulnerable residents.

Goddard Riverside Community Center is one of New York City’s leading human service organizations, assisting more than 17,000 people yearly with services including early childhood and youth programs, college counseling, supportive housing, employment readiness, older adult services and outreach to homeless people.School and New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Drama.
