PITTSFIELD — The Council on Aging next week will begin providing meals to go at the Ralph J. Froio Senior Center, 330 North St.

The meals will be handed out from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, beginning Tuesday, according to a statement from the Pittsfield Mayor's Office.

The senior center, as well as all other municipal offices and buildings, are closed to the public through April 7. During this time, center employees will be working in shifts from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Meal reservations must be made by noon the previous day by calling 413-499-9346. This option is available to seniors currently enrolled in the Meals on Wheels program and on the congregate meal site roster. Seniors not on the roster can contact Elder Services at 413-499-0524 to determine eligibility.

Transportation resources are available to seniors between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. for medical appointments, pharmacy visits and emergency shopping trips. To make a transportation appointment, contact the senior center at 413-499-9346. Provide 24 to 48 hours notice to allow for scheduling of drivers, as a reduced staffing schedule is currently in effect.
