COVID-19 precautions: 

To help prevent the spread of disease, we are taking proactive steps including:

  1. pre-packing food bags
  2. implementing drive through distributions where possible
  3. thoroughly disinfecting surfaces
  4. changing signature procedures
  5. increasing space for people to practice “social distancing” while at distributions
  6. We are urging all participants and volunteers - if feeling ill, stay home to prevent spreading illness. A proxy may be sent to pick up for those in need of food who cannot or should not leave home. Please be sure the note has the date, who the food is for, and permission for the name of person who is picking it up.
