The Rochester Senior Center has increased the distribution of food significantly, thanks to community partners and hard-working volunteers. Food for distribution is obtained through various community partners. Criteria varies by organization. If you are a Rochester resident and are in need of food, please contact the Senior Center at 508-763-8723. The staff will connect you to the appropriate resource. Food for distribution is provided by several community partners, including volunteer donations. The Rochester Senior Center would like to thank all of their partners for their generous donation of fresh produce last week. Most food is distributed by curbside pick-up at the Senior Center. Frozen protein is delivered by the Senior Center van to ensure freshness upon receipt.
The Rochester Senior Center remains closed. However, a very limited number of events may be scheduled. COVID-19 guidelines are in place for all activities and events held at the Rochester Senior Center; all participants must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth, and maintain a social distance of six feet from other attendees who do not live in their household. If you are not feeling well, or have any cold-like symptoms, please stay at home. Participants must sign a COA Waiver of Liability Agreement. At this time, activities and events held at the Rochester Senior Center are available for Rochester residents. People are asked to provide their own face-covering. The Senior Center has a limited supply, in case you forget your own. The Senior Center will sanitize areas used regularly. Sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer are available for use while visiting the Senior Center.
