In continuing to prioritize the health and safety of our partners, clients, volunteers and employees, Food Bank for the Heartland is closely monitoring the situation concerning the possible community transmission of COVID-19 and will continue to communicate any changes we experience to our partner agencies, volunteers and other stakeholders.
Food Bank for the Heartland remains open and distributing food to partners and programs. The Food Bank continues to work closely with school districts, after school programs and other organizations regarding the distribution of meals to children, families, seniors and others who need them.
Food Bank for the Heartland continues to follow USDA safe food handling guidelines which emphasize the importance of personal hygiene while handling food products. The Food Bank is also following the directives from the CDC and local Health Departments.
Volunteer shifts in our Volunteer Center continue as scheduled to facilitate the uninterrupted distribution of food to partner agencies and programs. Social distancing is being practiced in the volunteer center, and, as always, hand washing and adherence to food safety guidelines are paramount.
Due to the strain on the supply chain, Food Bank for the Heartland is not able to provide face masks for all volunteers. Therefore, while it is not required, we highly encourage anyone coming in to volunteer with us to wear a face mask of some type if you have one, including those made of cloth from home. If you need to change or cancel your volunteer opportunity, you may do so through your registration confirmation email or by calling (402) 331-1213.
Please take precautions and check back for additional updates as the information available continues to evolve.
