Senior Holiday Meals

Sen. Bernie Sanders' office will again organize six free senior holiday dinners in December. The meals are an opportunity for seniors to come together, enjoy a holiday meal and hear holiday music performed by local students. There will also be brief “town meeting” updates on senior issues.

The free meals will be held in Barre, Bennington, Brattleboro, Burlington, Rutland and St. Johnsbury. The St. Johnsbury and Burlington meals were held earlier this month.

Seating is limited and RSVPs are required. All meals start at noon.
