It has come to our attention that one of the volunteers who worked at one of our recent Free Grocery Store events has tested positive for Covid-19. This particular volunteer did not come into direct contact with any of our patrons and while on site they used the recommended COVID safety measures.
Although there has been minimal patron or volunteer potential exposure, we are opting to address this issue with serious concern.
To this end, we will not be conducting Monday’s Free Grocery Store on November 16th. We will take this time to review and further strengthen the necessary steps to assure everyone’s health and safety in continued accordance with the recommended guidelines put forth by the CDC, state, and local government authorities.
It is our goal to resume our Free Grocery Store events on Monday November 23rd.
