Meals on Wheels
Tel. No.: 802-885-5879
Serving the towns of Springfield, Chester, Andover, Baltimore and Weathersfield. Meals and Wheels of Greater Springfield, Inc. is a non-profit community service designed to help seniors maintain their independence as they face difficulties related to aging. A hot meal delivered daily by a friendly volunteer may be just enough support to enable someone to continue to live independently in their own home. For those who enjoy dining in the company of others, we also provide a congregate meal from 11:30 to 12:30 Monday through Friday at the meal site on the corner of Union and Southridge in Springfield. For more information on the congregate lunch or home delivered programs please call 885-5879.
