Fall 2021

As we try to enjoy the dwindling days of summer, the fall season will soon begin.  Our farmer’s market display for A Place To Turn’s Eat Fresh initiative will display the colors of the fall harvest.  Offering individuals choices of fresh fruits and vegetables remains true to our original mission.  Fresh produce is supplemented with pre-bagged  staples including grains, dairy and proteins. Diapers, personal care and household cleaning supplies are also provided.  With the continued challenges that Covid presents, distribution will remain outdoors on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30am to 12:30pm. The need for assistance remains in the Metrowest towns we serve and individuals have indicated that afternoon or early evening hours will enable them to better access the assistance A Place To Turn provides.  As a result, we will add outdoor distribution on Wednesday from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.

As always, the invaluable support that our surrounding community continues to provide enables A Place To Turn to sustain and enhance our programs.  The doors to our van are open for NON EXPIRED food donations, diapers (sizes 5 and 6 are the most requested), and pull-ups in size 4T-5T on Monday from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.  Grocery store gift cards are also appreciated.  Please mail them to:

Spring 2021

As we leave winter behind us and look forward to spring, A Place To Turn is grateful that it has been able to remain open to serve our Metrowest neighbors throughout the pandemic.  While the need has not lessened, continued support from our generous community has enabled APTT to provide pre-bagged staples as well as fresh fruits and vegetables presented in a “farmer’s market” display.  Despite encouraging signs in the fight against Covid, APTT works to remain a resource for Metrowest individuals and families in need of assistance with food, diapers and personal care items.  Distribution hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30am to 12:30pm.

Our mission to be a resource for emergency groceries remains to be a partnership with you and the community.  The APTT van is open on Monday from 10am to 12pm where non expired food and diapers may be placed.  NEW children’s clothing with tags will also be accepted at this time.  Grocery gift cards may also be mailed to:

Winter 2020

While we remain ever vigilant in following the recommended protocols for safety during this pandemic, we are pleased that  A Place To Turn has been able to continue providing nutritious, healthy food to our many neighbors in need.  With the generous support of the Metrowest community, APTT has been able to meet the increased demand for assistance during this very challenging time.  As we enter the winter season facing the prediction of rising Covid cases, APTT remains fully committed to providing assistance with groceries, diapers and personal care items to our Metrowest neighbors.  We are open for assistance Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30-12:30.

Our partnership with you and the community at large will help us continue to fulfill our mission and put food on the tables of families in need. Non expired food and diapers are accepted on Mondays from 10am to 12pm.  They may be placed in the APTT van parked under the tent.  Only NEW children’s clothing with tags will be accepted at this time.
