Home » Neighbors » HANDS Offers Free Holiday Dinner to Older Adults

Thursday December 12, 2013

In collaboration with the Elks Lodge, HANDS (Helping and Nurturing Diverse Seniors) is pleased to announce that they’ll be providing both a delivered meal and a sit down dinner again this year on Christmas Day. 

“We’re combining our efforts with the Elks Lodge and we’re happy to have the sit down buffet dinner on North Avenue this year,” explained HANDS Director Megan Humphrey. “We also know that some people would rather have a meal delivered to their home and we’ll provide that, too,” she continued.  

The free annual holiday dinner will be held on Christmas Day anytime from Noon-3:00 p.m. at the Elks Lodge at 925 North Avenue in Burlington, and there will be a special gathering there at 1p.m. 

To reserve the free meal delivered to your home (either ham or vegetarian lasagna), please call Champlain Valley Agency on Aging at 865-0360 by December 13. 

After December 13 or to reserve free transportation to the Elks Lodge, please call Megan Humphrey at 864-7528 or email Last year, 250 meals and gift bags were provided throughout Chittenden County.
Temple Sinai of South Burlington is one of the many organizations that coordinates activities to make the day a success.  For more information or to donate, please check
