WATERVILE, N.Y. -- A food pick up will be held at the Waterville Jr/Sr High School from 1:00pm to 5:00pm on Tuesday, March 31st. This is open to any families in need that live in or around the Waterville area.

There was a lot of preparation on Monday, March 30th. The Brothertown Connected Community Schools Community Response Team was at the Waterville Jr/Sr High School setting up. They unloaded over 15,000lbs of food from trucks and brought it into the school. They unpacked each box, then put each different food item in bags to be picked up by families on Tuesday. Each bag contains meat and other items to make simple meals for up to 5 days. The food will be distributed to over 400 families in and around the Waterville area.


We spoke to the Executive Director of the Rome Alliance for Education about this food drop tomorrow. Mrs. Melissa Roys told us "The food drop tomorrow is open to anyone in the area, not limited to Waterville. Of course this includes Deansboro, Oriskany Falls, and Brookfield. You don't need to have students in the district. It's open to anyone. We will give away over 15,000lbs worth of food. That includes meat, produce, cheese, butter, fruit, vegetables, and whatever you need." This food was provided by the Rome Alliance for Education and Safe Schools Mohawk Valley. 


Because of the coronavirus and social distancing, the Connected Community Schools is taking precautions. The Waterville Business Official told us what to expect, if your family is planning on going to the food pick up Tuesday.  Mrs. Tracy Leone said "We'll have people pull into the circle. There will be areas that are identified like 1, 2, and 3, sorted by cones. The person coming in will get out of their car, walk to that area, and take the products that are in there. It could be two bags and a box, or three bags, or two boxes. Whatever is in that section, you will take it as the individual and put it in your car."
