New Tec Connects Program

The Town of New Tecumseth continues to be here for our residents, and we are adapting to the changing times and needs of our community as a direct result of the COVID-19 global pandemic.  As such, we launched our New Tec Connects Program to support the evolving needs of our residents and our community as we work through this difficult time.  The New Tec Connects Program includes virtual fitness and activities, partnerships for grocery delivery and food drives.  As we continue to work together through this challenging time, we will continue to do all that we can through our organization as well as out New Tec Connects Program to help our residents through this unprecedented time.

Community Services 
Grocery Delivery Services

In an effort to support our residents who cannot or should not be out making trips within the community to pick up essential needs, we have partnered with the Foodland stores in both Beeton and Tottenham to help deliver supplies to those in need. 

To order weekly supplies from the Foodland stores to be delivered by the Town of New Tecumseth, please email the store directly with a list of required items, acceptable substitutions and credit card information. Customers must settle the payment with the stores prior to pick up.

Email the following addresses:

We are also looking to potentially partner with a grocer in Alliston. Updates will be posted.  

Food Drives 

Thank you to everyone who donated non-perishable food and/or monetary donations during the May 16 food drives held throughout our community by New Tecumseth Fire Rescue. In total, 1,365 lbs of food & $4,022.75 was collected for our food banks.  All donations collected will be distributed to the two foodbanks in New Tecumseth serving those in need within the community.

 

On April 11, our New Tecumseth Fire Rescue held food drives throughout the community where a generous 2,500 pounds of non-perishable food was donated to benefit Good Shepherd and Our Town food banks.

We sincerely thank the community for your generosity.
