One thing we can all agree on is that Ridgefield is a beautiful and thriving community. It’s hard to imagine that there’s anyone in need in Ridgefield. However, there is a “hidden” community of residents who are homebound, unable to drive, alone and sometimes ill or disabled. That’s where Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield plays a crucial part in our community.
