Meals on Wheels

Whether you’re eight or eighty, eating well-balanced meals rich in vitamins and minerals is very important to your health.

Sometimes it’s difficult to shop for, cook or even care about the foods we eat. We may be recovering from an illness, be homebound, or unable to shop or cook.

Meals on Wheels is a service designed to help eligible seniors and others meet their nutritional needs during such challenging times.

Eligibility Guidelines
Seniors age 60 and up are eligible for Meals on Wheels if they:
– Have a temporary or permanent incapacity due to illness or advancing age
OR
– Are nutritionally at risk (cannot always purchase adequate food or prepare meals)

Delivery
Meals are delivered by volunteers from the community around the noon hour. Meals are available up to 5 days a week, depending on the location.

Donations
The Meals on Wheels program depends on participant contributions to help support the service. Voluntary contributions are encouraged although no eligible person will be denied for lack of ability to contribute.

Meals on Wheels are brought to you by Senior Solutions—the Council on Aging of Southeastern Vermont, in cooperation with senior centers, community meal sites and some restaurants in Windham and Windsor counties.

We want to provide you with the best possible service. If at any time you are dissatisfied with the nutrition services provided, we encourage you to contact our agency.

To sign up or get more information, call our Senior HelpLine at 1-800-642-5119
