Meals on Wheels

For individuals 60 and older (regardless of income) who have trouble getting around or preparing their own food, we deliver the meal to you.

Meals On Wheels are delivered by community volunteers five days a week in Addison, Franklin, Grand Isle, and Chittenden counties. Our nutritious meals include protein, vegetables, milk, juice, bread, and fruit. Special diets (such as low-sodium) are accommodated.

For many older Vermonters, the trusted Meals on Wheels volunteer or staff member who shows up every day with a meal and a warm smile is the only person they see or speak with all day. This special delivery is the reason to get up in the morning, something to look forward to, and a reminder to take good care of themselves. Seniors traveling to group settings for meals also receive valuable social interaction and companionship. All of us can attest that a meal can be much more than the food on the plate, but also the company across the table.

Along with the inevitable impacts of aging come the increased risks of medical emergencies, falls and other accidents. The safety check that accompanies each meal delivery ensures that, in the case of an emergency or problem, medics will be called, families will be notified and our seniors will not be forgotten.
