When disasters strike, having a plan in place helps ensure a more successful outcome for you and your family.            

Waterford Township is pleased to announce a partnership 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 be selling a select item or type of item at cost.

Whether you’re a thrifty shopper or interested in helping your family become self-reliant, please take advantage of this program throughout 2023. Tenuta’s is located at 3515 Sashabaw in Waterford Township and has been a staple of our community since 1950.  Don’t forget to tell your neighbors and loved ones.
