Valentine Cookies for Meals on Wheels – with love from the Burlington Garden Club

Home » Community » Valentine Cookies for Meals on Wheels – with love from the Burlington Garden Club

Thursday February 18, 2016

They baked, they wrapped, and they presented Meals on Wheels with 275 Valentine cookie love packages to be included with Valentine’s Day meals for program recipients.  These special cookies were given to the Burlington Meals on Wheels program for distribution.

The Burlington Garden Club has had a long relationship with the Meals on Wheels program. In 1970, they began the tradition of creating small handcrafted gifts that were placed on each meal tray for the holidays in December. This project was done annually. Two years ago, the club made a change and started sending home baked heart shaped cookies in time for Valentine’s Day.
