WE’RE LOCATED IN THE CITY HOTEL CAFE IN DOWNTOWN BARRE, VT
Meals on Wheels Central Vermont, headquartered at The City Hotel Café (formerly The Galley), has been operating at 14 Washington Street in Barre, VT since 1993. We are located in the basement of Washington Apartments, which provides subsidized housing.
