The Ridgefield Historical Society has created an exhibit at Ridgefield Town Hall at 400 Main Street to salute Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield, which has a 50-year history of serving our community by providing home-delivered meals to anyone who needs them. According to Dean Miller, Meals on Wheels board chair, the organization began in 1974 when the Ridgefield Clergy Association “identified a need in the community to care for residents who were unable to prepare their own meals due to age, illness, injury and other disabilities”. Founders, Barbara Deegan, Marian Sloan and Annette Zelson, started out cooking in the basement of Saint Mary School and initially delivered about 24 meals a week.  During the first year of operation, we served approximately 5,300 meals.” In 2024, Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield now serves over 53,000 meals.

Admission to this exhibit is free and it’s open Mon-Fri, 8:30-4:30 through August 15.
