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 referrals are placed, hot lunches and cold suppers will be delivered within 48 hours.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.
