Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently unable to serve meals at both the Groton Senior Center and West Side Middle School. In the meantime, meals are available for curbside pickup at Faith Lutheran Church in Groton each Monday from 5:30-6:30 pm. Walk-ups and bicyclists will also be served. Please note that we will only provide the number of meals that there are people in the car.
If you are experiencing a food emergency, contact Human Services or call 2-1-1.
