It was 1972, an association of Ridgefield clergy 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. A small team started cooking in the basement of St. Mary School and delivered about 24 meals/week.
After 12 years and a couple of moves, we found a home at Ballard Green and cobbled together a working kitchen. In 2003, with a one-time grant from the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, we were able to completely renovate and expand the kitchen to commercial grade. After significant growth in 2018 and 2019, we expanded the kitchen again in 2020 to give us more working space and room to grow!
