During this time of COVID-19, seniors citizens have been urged to stay home for health and safety purposes making it difficult for them to get groceries and essential items. We are happy to announce that Danbury’s new food delivery program is here to help!
Older adults in Danbury can now get groceries delivered right to their homes through the new program, developed by staff and volunteers from Connecticut Community Care, United Way of Western Connecticut, Hillside Food Outreach, Jericho Partnership, Elmwood Hall Senior Center and members of the Age Well Community Council.
“People over 60 who have underlying health conditions need to avoid crowds, and we want to make sure they still have access to food,” said Sherry Ostrout, director of government initiatives of Connecticut Community Care and the Age Well Community Council of Danbury. “Several agencies are working together to deliver staples at no cost. We are also gauging the need for other services, such as shopping for specific grocery items at no extra charge.”
If you are or know an older adult resident of Danbury who needs help getting groceries, please contact Connecticut Community Care at (203) 591-5485.
