Let’s Do Lunch: Volunteer with Age Well,
Vermont’s Largest Meals on Wheels Provider
Help is especially needed in Swanton, Milton & Vergennes
Many people know Meals on Wheels as a food delivery service for the homebound. However, what they don’t know is how impactful the moments of contact between the volunteer and the recipient can be. For many seniors, the volunteer who drops off their meal is the only person they will see that day. The delivery isn’t just about nourishment; it’s about a valuable moment of human connection. And in turn, it’s those moments of human connection that make volunteering so rewarding.
With the senior population projected to double by 2050, Age Well needs to recruit a whole new wave of volunteers to meet the growing need. Our Meals on Wheels program delivers over 250,000 meals each year and includes more than 350 volunteers who bring meals to seniors in need every day between 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. These volunteers are crucial to the well-being of Vermont seniors.
What can you do? Help take care of those who once took care of us by volunteering with the Age Well. If you can’t stray too far from the office, donate your lunch break and participate in meal delivery close to your work.
