Take & Eat - COVID-19 Protocol
The Take & Eat program is listed as an essential service. As such, we will continue to provide to all those in need through the COVID-19 Pandemic. In order to operate as safely as possible for both our volunteers and our clients, we are taking additional measures during this challenging time. Please review all of our recent changes listed below prior to signing up as a volunteer for the program.
We ask that children stay at home at this time. Only adults will be allowed to volunteer.
We will be limiting cooks to 4 and packers to 4.
Only signed up volunteers will be allowed into the kitchen. We are limiting how many workers are in the kitchen, so if you want to volunteer, you must sign up.
All desserts will be purchased by the shopping crew until further notice.
