By Joe Gullo
ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. - On May 7, CVAA says they will deliver their 9 millionth senior meal in the Champlain Valley.
CVAA serves Meals on Wheels and Senior Community Meals in Chittenden, Addision, Franklin, and Grand Isle counties.
“It’s an incredible amount of meals for our area in the small state of Vermont,” remarked Zoe Hardy, CVAA Nutrition Director. “Meals on Wheels are delivered by over 900 volunteers to seniors unable to prepare their own meals. Our community meals programs are offered in over 70 different locations throughout the Champlain Valley, including a growing number of restaurants. We expanded the delivery days from twice a week in our early years to five day delivery virtually everywhere today. Last year, we served 107,488 Community Meals and 226,353 Meals on Wheels, totaling 333,841 meals.”
CVAA says for 40 years they have been providing services and support to allow seniors to live with independence and dignity.
With the help of community partners and volunteers, CVAA serves over 10,000 seniors.
