The district asks that potential recipients respond in advance so it can plan for the proper number of meals. Delivery is available for seniors who ask in advance; leave a call back number when you notify the district. Residents who need breakfast items are asked to leave that information in their message.
Meal Site Food Distribution:
Berkshire Food Project: 11:30-1:00
Beginning on Monday, June 1, 2020, we will be moving the meal distribution inside. Meals will still be take-out only, for home enjoyment. No restroom facility is available. Traffic will be one way, entering through the breezeway and exiting directly from the dining room onto Summer Street. Masks (properly worn so they cover your nose and mouth) are required to be in line outside and to enter the building. Masks are available if you don't have one. Social distancing required.
Only eight people will be allowed in the building at one time... each time a person leaves, another person will be able to enter. Doors will be opened for you - no need to touch doorknobs. The only thing you will need to touch is the food you are taking home. As with any change, we will all learn as we go. There may be adjustments to the process as we figure it all out. Please bear with us. Our focus is to feed everyone while keeping everyone safe. THANK YOU!
