In response to the COVID-19 “Coronavirus” pandemic, Food for Thought has taken rapid and drastic action in an effort to protect our patrons, employees, and the community. So while we continue to offer our mobile food pantries and weekend PB&J lunch distribution we have cut down the number of people involved and points of physical contact. We are also maximizing our cleaning and sanitation efforts, as well as teaching, practicing, and promoting effective handwashing and social distancing.
As we all try to navigate this extraordinary time, let us think about the ways we can BE extraordinary by helping those who are feeling the effects of this pandemic the most. At Food for Thought, we pride ourselves on serving the community in a thoughtful and dignified way. 1 in 4 families in our community struggles with hunger. That need is greater than ever right now! With your help, you can ensure food is one less thing your neighbors have to worry about during this crisis. Below are ways you can help and directly impact your community.
Volunteer - We Need You! We are committed to continuing to pack and distribute PB&J lunches every weekend but have had to move this program to an offsite location. To stay within the CDC current guidelines, we will be hosting small volunteer groups as well as adding an additional packing day on Thursday. To sign up for lunch packing and/or Saturday morning distribution, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donate - A little goes a long way! An elderly woman we served last week broke down in tears thanking us for still being open saying she would not have had much to eat for the next two weeks without our help. We invite you to help us continue to make fresh produce and shelf stable products available during this uncertain time. Please click this link to donate and help us feed our neighbors. To donate canned and shelf stable food items, call 419-972-0022 or e-mail email@example.com
