Seniors: Grocery shopping/delivery service available

Covers cost of fees and groceries up to $100.00

The North Central Area Agency on Aging (NCAAA) is launching a new service designed to address food insecurity for seniors who are able to prepare meals, unable to shop for groceries due to the pandemic, and who may be unable to pay for groceries as costs have significantly increased. They are providing a Grocery Shopping and Delivery service whereby they will cover the delivery charges, any shopping fees, and the cost of groceries at +/- $100.00 per shopping trip. They are partnering with Geissler’s Supermarkets and with a local non-profit called UR Community Cares to do much of the delivery. For more information, please contact NCAAA at: (860)724-6443 x 268 “CHOICES”.

The NCAAA is also seeking to assist seniors who may need to shelter-in-place throughout the summer, and they’re very concerned about their comfort and safety, as they do so. They have funding at their disposal for items such as fans, air conditioners, lift-chairs, incontinence supplies, and emergency response systems for individuals who may be home-confined, with our without the assistance of a caregiver or family member’s support. Please contact NCAAA at (860)724-6443 x 230 “Caregiver Team”.
