We are in need of volunteers to deliver meals and to shop for groceries, cover our food hubs, pick up medications and other essentials in: Addison, Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties. As more and more Seniors are reaching out about receiving Meals on Wheels and other services we need extra hands. Please contact Erica Marks, Director of Volunteer Services at 802-662-5249 or emarks@agewellvt.org.

I want to let you know that Governor Scott’s Stay at Home order provides exemptions for businesses and entities providing services or functions deemed critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security. This includes – but is not limited to – health care operations; retail serving essential human needs. Age well is still considered an essential service therefore we will continue with Meals on Wheels deliveries. As you can imagine the need for seniors is increasing at a steady rate. We are now serving more and more clients and the need for volunteers is growing daily. Age Well has been working around the clock to ensure that the older Vermonters we serve continue to receive Meals on Wheels and services and supports at home.
