Healthy lunches delivered to homebound seniors

Medically homebound seniors (age 60 and over) may be eligible to receive healthy lunches delivered to their door. Seniors must live in CRT's communities within Middlesex, Tolland or Hartford counties. Volunteers and staff deliver the meals directly to homes. After referrals are placed, hot lunches will be delivered between 10:00 am - 1:00 pm. 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 unable to eat at a community meal site
  • Be assessed by staff as medically homebound
Referrals are accepted from doctors, hospitals, VNAs, and town social service departments. An interview and/or home visit is required to assess need.
 
Once approved, we will begin meal delivery within two days of receiving the application.
 
To start the process, contact a Program Manager at (860) 560-5848.
