COVID-19 RESPONSE AT OUR COMMUNITY KITCHEN & FOOD PANTRY

In light of ongoing developments around COVID-19, we have temporarily suspended our senior program. Our Senior Pantry will distribute prepackaged meal bags instead (see times days/times below). During our normal daily sit-down meal service times and client-choice pantry times, Food Bank staff will instead distribute this food as to-go meals and pre-packaged pantry bags. These measures are meant to help minimize risk of exposure for the vulnerable populations we serve.
