COVID-19 Response Updates & Information
More than 100,000 people in our community rely on us for food and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that number could rise to more than 148,000. That's 1 in 7 people, including 1 in 5 children, that may face food insecurity.
The health and safety of our community, volunteers and staff continue to be a top priority and we are taking extra precautions around our facility to maintain social distancing and other CDC guidelines. We are working with partners such as Feeding America, food donors and vendors preparing to meet the need as necessary. Like other Foodbanks, we are altering our delivery system to fit the needs of the individual communities we serve.
Although we are taking precautions and adapting our delivery systems, the Foodbank is still doing what we’ve done from more than three decades—providing food and support for our agency partners so they can distribute food to those in need.
If You Need Food
- With a few exceptions, our network of 170 partner agencies and programs remains open. Find our list of partners here. We recommend calling before you go to confirm program hours and requirements. A list of our partners that are temporarily closed or have changed their hours can be found below.
