Grocery Brigade for Seniors


As re-openings have occurred, we have been challenged with dwindling volunteer availability as they return back to their jobs and our bus service in higher demand for transportation to Doctor’s appointments. We are also coming into warmer weather which presents a problem in how to keep the refrigerated groceries cool during delivery.

For all of these reasons, effective, June 1, 2020 at 11:00 AM we have suspended acceptance of any new orders and we will be making our last deliveries on Tuesday, June 9, 2020. While we had hoped we could sustain through the end of June, we have been increasingly stressed with volunteer, bus and driver shortages.

We recommend seniors that are staying out of the grocery stores reach out to Shop Rite at Home as they are staffed and equipped to assist in your grocery orders (they are back to a 2 to 3 day turnaround). Their number is: (203)262-1477. Market 32 in Oxford delivers through Insta Cart which is also another option.

Thank you again to the amazing community for their support for this program and a big thank you to the Senior Services Team for their dedication to this program. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Grocery Brigade hotline at (475) 207-5504.
