Citymeals CEO Beth Shapiro

Beth Shapiro has led Citymeals on Wheels since 2011, increasing the number of meals delivered by 20% and doubling public donations and institutional support.

She spearheaded Citymeals’ first capital campaign, raising $23 million to inaugurate the Joan & Bob Tisch Meal Distribution Center. This facility in the Bronx expanded Citymeals' capacity as a emergency responder and enabled us to mount an unprecedented and sustained response to the food crisis created by Covid-19. During the pandemic, Citymeals delivered over six million meals to 50,000 older New Yorkers.

Beth also worked with Chef Daniel Boulud to launch Chefs Deliver, which takes some of the city’s best chefs out of their kitchens to deliver special meals to their isolated elderly neighbors.
