ROOTS

ROOTS is a monthly grocery delivery (or pick-up) program for income-qualifying people aged 60 or older.

On the second Thursday of each month, staple food items are delivered to the doorsteps of seniors who may have transportation or mobility challenges. 

Food is also available for pick up, at which time seniors can also shop our Store Program

Included with pantry staples, MFB&CC supplements ROOTS boxes with fresh produce and supplemental nutrition drinks.
