Stoughton Council on Aging needs back up drivers to fill in on an as needed basis when a driver cannot do their regular route. You could help put a smile on the face of a senior in the Stoughton community by ensuring that they have a delicious and nutritious meal to eat. The nutrition service, Meals on Wheels, is provided Monday through Friday mornings in a variety of settings including congregate facilities such as senior centers; or by home-delivery to individuals who are home-bound due to illness, disability, or geographic isolation.
