Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

We are an essential business and remain open to the public during the stay-at-home order.

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.

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 and volunteer areas 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.
  • If you are healthy and able, please help by volunteering to pack emergency food boxes. We URGENTLY need volunteers to keep our operations running. Email volunteer@communityfoodbank.org to get started.
