BROOKLYN - Citymeals-on-Wheels is busy making special care packages for senior citizens ahead of Passover. 

The assembly line in Williamsburg is churning out boxes of non-perishable kosher food, with each box containing enough food to last recipients eight days. They include macaroons, matzos, beef goulash and stuffed cabbage. 

Volunteers with Macy's helped pack 4,400 boxes, and they’ll all be delivered to homebound residents so that they can celebrate the holiday.
