Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

The Community Food Bank is committed to protecting the health and safety of our communities, while continuing to meet the critical need for emergency food. We expect that need to increase as schools and workplaces are shut down and the economy is affected by COVID-19.

We are actively monitoring the situation and recommendations from the CDC and local government, and we will continue to share updates on this page.

COVID-19 Updates

Our doors are open! 

  • We have moved food distributions to drive-through and low-contact models.
  • We have adjusted service hours at all locations. 
  • Our Santa Cruz River Farmers' Market continues to operate as a drive-through market every Thursday.
  • In accordance with CDC recommendations, we have canceled all events and gatherings. 
  • We are taking extra measures to keep our staff, volunteers, and community healthy. We have encouraged many staff to work from home, canceled all out-of-state staff travel, and provided extra sanitation and hand-washing stations where possible. Work stations have been altered to reduce person-to-person contact. 

How can I help?

  • Please stay home if you’re sick. We all need to help protect members of our community who are most vulnerable to illness.
  • We are currently in need of volunteer groups! Learn more here
  • We are currently unable to accept food donations at our warehouses. The best way to help is to make a gift online, or donate food at one of our community partner locations
  • Donate today. As schools shut down and the economy is affected, we expect a higher than usual need for emergency food. You can help us keep our doors open.
