No food distribution on Friday, February 25, 2022
Due to the forecast of icy inclement weather, the Cameron Center will be closed on Friday, February 25, 2022, and therefore no food distribution will take place. Normal Food distribution will resume next week at the normal times of Wednesday, 6:00 - 8:00 PM and Friday 9:00 - 11:00 AM. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but as always, safety is our first concern.
SNAP households who lost food due to storm power outages are eligible for replacement benefits
If you lost food you purchased with SNAP benefits due to a power outage, you are eligible for SNAP benefit replacement.
SNAP households who lost power for more than four hours and as a result had to toss food unsafe to eat can request SNAP replacement benefits for the value of the food lost that was purchased with SNAP - up to their monthly SNAP (including Emergency Allotments). The household has to report the loss to DTA within 10 days of the loss. A household can report the loss a number of ways. Call the DTA Assistance Line at 877-382-2363: Either via automated prompts (after selecting a language, press 5 and then 1) or by reaching a worker and verbally reporting the loss of food; send in a written note though DTAConnect. Be sure to select the “misfortune” verification category to flag the report for DTA. If doing this option, follow the guidance for a self-declaration; and visit a local DTA office (make sure to check if the DTA office is open).

The WFP isn’t not only distributing bags during our scheduled pantry hours but weekly our volunteers are making prepackaged bags to be delivered to all Westford and Chelmsford Housing Authorities properties serving Westford residents. This effort is being coordinated through the Cameron Social Services staff who provide a weekly sign-up sheet at each housing property for residents to register for weekly distribution. On Friday, March 27th the WFP provided fifty-one bags to be handed out with the help of the Medical Reserve Corp volunteers. To learn more about this food distribution service for income based senior housing communities please contact Annette Cerullo, COA Outreach Coordinator at 978-399-2326 or Alison Christopher, Town Social Worker at 978-399-2325.

The Westford Food Pantry thanks girl scout troop 6293 for their creative and thoughtful donation of birthday bags for kids! The troop came up with the idea of donating a birthday bag for families to take home to help make birthday celebrations a little easier.
Each birthday bag is filled with cake mixes, cake pans, birthday candles, plates, napkins, and other items to celebrate each child's special day. This was a wonderful service project and a great way to help reach out to our community in need and come up with a special way to celebrate a child's special day! Great job girls!!
