How FEAST Shares The Love With Our Montpelier Community
The FEAST Senior Meals Program has been serving Meals on Wheels recipients in the Montpelier and Berlin area for over a decade. Each year, we serve over a hundred recipients, and in 2022, FEAST delivered over 20,000 nutritious meals. Take a look at some of our volunteers packing meals in our FEAST Kitchen to go out to our recipients.
Meal delivery means more than just a meal to our recipients. A meal recipient's delivery represents a time to connect with their volunteer driver, someone they care about and can reliably talk to each time. Recipients talk about their day, share their stories with us, and truly share the love.
Subaru's Share The Love empowers charities to do good in the communities they serve. For 15 years, Subaru has been running their Share the Love Event, and they have donated over $250 million to national and hometown charities across the U.S. FEAST Senior Meals is honored to partner with Subaru as a Meals on Wheels member in Central Vermont.
