Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels Delivery

Our home-delivered meals program, better known to as Meals On Wheels, provides nutritious meals to older adults who are unable to prepare their own meals or to attend the community meals at one of our 14 meal sites.

All of the meals prepared with CVCOA’s support are reviewed by a registered dietician to ensure that they provide the elders with the nutrition needed for good health.

How Does It Help?

In a recent survey, 98% of these seniors report having enough to eat every day and 90% report feeling better. Over 70% have said that this nutritional support has enabled them to remain living in their homes.

While these results show the program’s great benefit for our elders’ health, that’s not all they do!

The brief visit from the volunteers who bring meals to the door often turns into both a friendly visit and a chance to check on the elders’ well-being. These visits provide seniors and their families with peace of mind and an increased feeling of safety.

To Register

Signing up for Meals On Wheels is easy. Contact your local home-delivered meal program. A list of the programs in Central Vermont can be found here.

All participants will be contacted by a CVCOA Options Counselor to offer a home visit to discuss any other concerns you may have.

Adults with disabilities younger than 60 who need home-delivered meals should contact the Vermont Center for Independent Living at 1-800-639-1522 or visit their website for more information.
