Agewll Community Council offering grocery services to older Danbury residents

A coalition of local non-profit support agencies is offering food delivery and shopping services to older people in Danbury who should not be traveling to grocery stores.  Agewll Community Council co-chair Dianne Yamin says it may be unsafe for people over 60 who have a serious underlying medical condition to do routine grocery shopping during these uncertain times.

Several years ago the Peter Buck Foundation created the Council.  It's a collaboration of government, business, philanthropy, nonprofit and other community organizations dedicated to moving communities forward where people can age in ways that are relevant, healthy and meaningful.  Currently, the Council is working with community partners to help Danbury Senior Residents who are homebound and unable to obtain groceries and food. 

With assistance from United Way, Connecticut Community Care, Hillside Food Outreach and Jericho Partnership, they are providing food delivery and/grocery shopping for the homebound elderly.

Danbury Seniors who need food delivered or groceries can contact Connecticut community care at: 203 591-5485  or go on the website: www.agewellct.org/foodhelp 

Greater Danbury area residents can still call and volunteers will connect them with Hillside Food Outreach.
