How food shelves are responding to COVID-19

We’ve asked food shelves to change how they deliver services very quickly to maintain safety of their volunteers, staff, and customers. Many food shelves are implementing drive-up services to help maintain social distance while continuing to get food resources to people who need it.

Last week, we visited Christian Cupboard Food Shelf to share with us what their new drive through model looks like, what they want volunteers to know, and what they need from their communities.¬†Here’s what they had to say:


What the new model looks like 

What volunteers need to know about COVID-19 at the food shelf

What food shelves need from their communities

Christian Cupboard has also shared their plan documents as a sample to help food shelves start moving to a pre-packed, drive-thru distribution.

Food shelves: What do you need to know? How is the new model working for you? Got an idea to share with your fellow food shelves? Let us know!
