Green Island Senior Citizens Will Provide Delivered Meals

As you may know, we were mandated to close our lunch program for Seniors because of the COVID-19 situation.  We have been given permission to prepare meals and deliver to our Senior population in Green Island.  In order to make this work, we have some guidelines.  Any Green Island resident over the age of 60 can call and reserve a lunch for Monday through Thursday by calling to Senior Center at (518) 272-7262 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. THE DAY BEFORE the requested meal.  The day of the delivery, someone will bring the meal to your home around 12 noon, ring your doorbell and leave.  If you do not have a working doorbell, please be watching for the person delivering.  They cannot have direct contact with you, so keep track of the number of meals delivered to you and the donation that is usually collected at Seniors can be settled up at a later date when everything calms down.  All this is possible because of the hard work of Green Island Senior Citizen Executive Director, Jill Alix, who is determined to make sure her Seniors are fed, along with some volunteers from law enforcement and village and GIPA employees. 

The planned menu for the rest of March is:

          -Monday, March 23rd is Baked Ziti

          -Tuesday, March 24th is Beef Stew

          -Wednesday, March 25th is Meatloaf

          -Thursday, Marcy 26th is Boneless Pork Chop

          -Monday, March 30th is BLT Sandwich

          -Tuesday, March 31st is Oven Fried Chicken

We will post April’s menu on this website and put in a copy in next week’s meal deliveries.

We will also be doing “well checks” by phone on our Senior and Shut In lists.  If you are alone and would like to have someone check on you, please call the Village Office at (518) 273-2201 and leave your contact information.

Stay home and stay safe.
