Freestore Foodbank has been monitoring the development of COVID-19 and taking proactive steps to protect and feed the tristate community we serve. As our city’s leading hunger-relief organization, we must be prepared to provide emergency food to our vulnerable neighbors who may be impacted by the pandemic and related sudden economic changes.
The Freestore Foodbank is here to serve our neighbors in the tristate when they need us the most. We provide food, connection, and hope, especially during the most challenging times. As we face the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, our main priority is to keep our customers, volunteers, donors, and staff safe.
We are currently working to develop strategies and plans while meeting the community needs as we continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation. We are following guidance from the CDC, federal, state and local agencies as well as working with the Feeding America Network of foodbanks. Our team is following the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC on the steps we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus.
