Applications for this program must first be submitted to: Western Massachusetts Food Bank, P.O. Box 160, Hatfield, MA 01038-0160. Applications are available at the Senior Center and assistance is available for preparation of the form. Applicants will be sent a card authorizing them to utilize the service. A ten pound bag of foodstuffs is provided which may include cereals or crackers, canned fruits and vegetables, and, when available, fresh fruits and vegetables. Volunteers who assist in the program were allowed to take a Brown Bag in compensation for their efforts in the past, but due to the shortage of foods, the practice has been eliminated. Food distribution is also done at senior housing sites by volunteers who deliver to homebound seniors.
