Donors are needed to cook and deliver meals for 37 people every night through mid-April. The current schedule and sign up is online at For more information, contact Janine Fleri at 264-8191 or

The Community Health Centers of Burlington was officially awarded the federal status of a Healthcare for the Homeless Program grantee in 1989 and today remains the only organization in Vermont with this designation, ensuring completely free access to health care for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. The operation had seven locations and is one of the largest nonprofit family health and dental practices in Chittenden and Grand Isle counties. Information:
