March for Meals

Join the March

Throughout the month of March & April, hundreds of Meals on Wheels programs across the country reach out to their communities to establish a network of support that will enable them to serve America’s seniors all year long. As the largest Meals on Wheels provider in Vermont, Age Well oversees more than 70 routes, serving over 330,000 meals each year. A volunteer staff of 800 drivers, deliver meals to seniors five days a week.

Why March for Meals

Too many Vermont seniors are left behind, alone and hungry, struggling to stay independent and healthy. In 2022:

are threatened by hunger
