Healthy lunches and dinners delivered to homebound seniors

Homebound seniors can receive healthy lunches and dinners delivered to their door. Seniors must live in CRT's communities within Tolland or Hartford counties. Volunteers and staff provide social interaction through daily contact. After orders are placed, hot lunches and cold suppers are delivered next day. Weekend meals are delivered on Fridays. Special diets and textures are available. 


A $2.50 donation per meal is suggested to help cover costs. However, no one is denied a meal if unable to pay.

To Apply
Participants must

  • Be 60 years of age or older

  • Be assessed by staff as ‘homebound’

Referrals are accepted from doctors, hospitals, VNAs, town social service departments, relatives and other concerned persons or agencies. An interview and/or home visit is required to assess need.

Once approved, we will call your doctor for a diet order. Meals will begin within two days of receiving the diet order. Contact the CRT Home Delivery Manager or your town coordinator (phone numbers below) to obtain meals or make a referral.
