Volunteer Info

  • TMM was started in 1970 by Jean Schlecht and Pat Venetta, with the help of fellow members of the Trumbull Medical Society Alliance.

  • TMM started with just one client, and then increased to two when his neighbor told Jean Schlecht that since we had fed his neighbor for two weeks and had not poisoned him he would take our meals too.

  • TMM serves approximately 230 clients Monday through Friday

  • TMM provides a hot meal and one cold sack lunch, made fresh in our kitchen every day.

  • TMM offers regular diets and modified meals for those who have special dietary needs.

  • TMM allows for food exceptions for the discriminating client

  • TMM serves 460 meals Monday through Friday and provides weekend meals for those who need additional help.

  • Each day, 40-45 volunteers prepare, pack and deliver the meals Monday through Friday.

  • TMM has a volunteer force of 350-400 people

  • An additional 500 volunteers serve in other ways to support TMM and help with various events throughout the year.
