When disasters strike, having a plan in place helps ensure a more successful outcome for you and your family.
Waterford Township is pleased to partner with Tenuta’s Food Lane to help residents become self-reliant for the first 72 hours of a disaster. Each month for one year, Tenuta’s will sell a select item or type of item at cost. This will allow people to purchase and stock up on items to help their families during a natural disaster. The program began in January 2023 and will run through the end of the year. The products offered will include cases of water, canned meats and vegetables, dry goods, pet food, batteries, and so on.
