Volunteers Help Deliver Food
The Wellfleet Council on Aging reports this week on a number of ways people are helping deliver food so as to protect elders from exposure to coronavirus.
Thanks to volunteer efforts of the Nauset Regional High School Honor Society, groceries from the Orleans Whole Food Store, ordered by phone, can be delivered to Wellfleet and Eastham homes. Call 508-255-6540 before noon on the same day you wish to receive the groceries. Deliveries take place between 2 and 4 p.m.
The Wellfleet Council on Aging can pick up groceries at the Wellfleet Marketplace for delivery to seniors’ homes on Thursday mornings. Orders can be placed by calling 508-349-3156.
The Wellfleet food pantry at Grace Chapel on Lieutenant Island Road held a curbside food pickup March 24. It provided food to nearly 70 families. The next drive-up distribution in Wellfleet is scheduled for Tuesday, April 7, according to the Council on Aging.
Recycling, Pay-as-You-Throw Suspended
Recycling at the Wellfleet Transfer Station is on hold due to coronavirus concerns. For staff safety purposes, the transfer station won’t accept construction debris, recycling, demolition, or yard waste. You can throw out your trash for free — no pay-as-you-throw purple bags needed from now to April 30. The town staff asks that you hold all items except trash until the staffing restrictions are lifted. —K.C. Myers
