During the pandemic, South Fellowship Food Bank has continuously strived to maintain the safety of our community and meet the requirements of the public health department. We have made the safety of our shoppers and volunteers our top priority for over a year and don’t plan on changing that any time soon.
We continue to stay in step with local guidelines, including the latest mask guidelines from the state. Therefore, starting May 22, we will no longer require shoppers and volunteers to wear masks at our Food Bank.
Current science supports that vaccinated individuals are at very low risk of contracting or transmitting the virus and as such do not need to wear a mask. Those who are not vaccinated may still be at risk and are encouraged to wear a mask when indoors. Each person may make their own choice about masking at the Food Bank, and will not be asked to explain their choice.
We still request that anyone who is feeling sick does not enter the Food Bank. We will continue to create a custom box for any guests who would prefer that service. Simply ask a volunteer to bring you a shopping form and we will shop for you while you wait.
It is our deepest hope that members of our community feel welcome and safe in our Food Bank. We understand that for some this may be an uncomfortable change and we respect that. We also encourage our community to speak with others in a respectful manner on this topic.
Hand washing will be recommended upon entering the Food Bank. We will continue to maintain regular cleaning and appropriate spacing as people are comfortable. If you have concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
De acuerdo con las directrices locales de salud pública, a partir del 22 de mayo ya no necesitaremos máscaras en el Banco de Alimentos. Recomendamos a aquellos que no están vacunados que usen una máscara cuando estén en interiores. No necesitaremos pruebas de vacunación.
Seguimos solicitando que cualquier persona enferma no entre en el Banco de Alimentos. Seguiremos ofreciendo la opción de crear una caja personalizada para cualquier huésped que no pueda o no desee entrar en el Banco de Alimentos. Esperamos que se sienta seguro y bienvenido.
