WCBL Programming Schedule

IN ORDER TO KEEP OUR COMMUNITY SAFE FOLLOWING THE COVID-19 SURGE IN NEW YORK CITY, EDUCATIONAL ALLIANCE IS SLOWLY RETURNING TO IN-PERSON AND HYBRID CLASSES FOR OLDER ADULTS. WE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP THE PROGRAMMING SCHEDULE BELOW UP-TO-DATE.

In-person lunches will be served Monday – Friday from 12:00 PM to 12:40 PM. Members can pick-up their lunch tickets in the MCC Lobby starting at 11:40 AM for a suggested donation of $2. No individual will be turned away for not contributing. Service is limited to 50 participants per day. GrabandGo will continue Monday – Friday from 12:15 PM to 12:45 PM. Hot meals will now be distributed from the middle doors of the 6th Floor Dining Room at MCC (to your left when you exit the elevators).

Social Services will still be available via phone, email, or Zoom.
