A little about ourselves
Burlington Meals on Wheels is a private non-profit organization delivering meals to the elderly and infirm of the Greater Burlington VT Area. We do not charge for our meals we ask our receivers to donate whatever they can afford. Our funding comes from donations, fund-raising, grants, and some private organizations like CVAA (formerly the the Champlain Valley Agency on Aging). We do not get any direct federal, state, or United Way money. Most of our Clients are over 60 years old but we do feed younger people as well. We prepare our meals daily using as many local ingredients as we can. Our meals are packed by us and delivered by our wonderful volunteer drivers. The delivery and the contact that our receivers get from our drivers is as important as the nutrition provided by the meals. One of the main things people want as they age is to be able to stay in their own homes and out of nursing homes and hospitals as long as possible. In fact we can feed one person for a whole year for less than it costs to spend one day in the hospital. We think that is time, money, and energy well spent. Do you know anyone who may need meals on wheels? If so please contact us.
