Twin Lakes Food Bank Coronavirus (COVID-19): Update 3.27.2020
Twin Lakes Food Bank (TLFB) continues its mission to provide food and support to our neighbors experiencing food scarcity in the midst of the declared national emergency due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). These are unsettling times to say the least, and individuals and families experiencing hunger will still have access to nutritious food, being distributed by staff and volunteers who are strictly adhering to recommendations by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the California Department of Public Health.
Effective on Monday, March 30, Twin Lakes Food Bank will be offering the following for our clients:
- Distribution days are Monday-Friday, 10 AM – 12:30 PM.
- Clients will have a “drive up” experience to receive their food in the Mt. Olive Church parking lot (320 Montrose Drive). Clients will remain in their vehicles.
- Clients will receive pre-bagged groceries that are prepared by staff and volunteers.
- TLFB will continue to register each client visit.
- Homeless clients will be registered and served in the Mt. Olive Church parking lot.
- If you know a senior citizen or others who are unable to pick up their food, you can pick it up for them. Bring a current piece of their mail and a note giving you permission.
- TLFB will offer grocery delivery to any senior citizen, 60 or older, who is housebound due to self-quarantine and does not have the support to pick up their food. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a delivery.
- For additional food assistance for senior citizens, please visit: https://www.raleys.com/senior-essentials-bag/
Our board, staff and volunteers are committed to providing food and hope to those who need it during these uncertain times. We will continue to monitor COVID-19’s development and make any necessary changes to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients, volunteers and staff.
Thank you for your prayers and support,
