USDA Farmers to Families Food Box Program at the Senior Center

USDA Farmers to Families Logo

The Executive Office of Elder Affairs and Elder Services of Worcester (ESWA) are part of the USDA Farmers to Families Food Box Program.

The Senior Center has been fortunate to be included in this program. In the past few months we’ve donated many boxes to the Shrewsbury Housing Authority and to St. Anne’s Food Pantry.

Those boxes sometimes consist of sausages, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, cheese, ham and other perishables.

If you are a Shrewsbury senior and would be interested in receiving some of the food, please call the Senior Center at 508-841-8640 and we will put you on a list to call when we receive the donations. We will need your name, address and phone number. If you live outside of Shrewsbury contact your local senior center for more information regarding your town. 

Please note – the donation times vary month to month and are not guaranteed. We will contact you when the food is delivered to us. We will then make arrangements for you to pick it up at the center or have it delivered to you by a staff member or by a trusted volunteer.
