Donate Fresh Produce – April 2020
For the moment, we will not be accepting donations of fresh produce. We have made changes to our food distribution and food drop off procedures that make individual produce donations difficult to handle.
- Food distribution and food drop offs are being done outside our facility. Non-staff and volunteers who aren’t volunteering are not allowed inside our building.
- In order to minimize contact and time a client family is at AFAC, we are handing out bags that are already filled with AFAC’s standard menu of food items.
- These pre-assembled bags are all uniform. This means all bags are getting the same kind of produce – produce that is being purchased.
Once we feel it’s safe to move our distribution back into our facility, we will resume fresh produce donations from individuals. That will allow us to go back to our client choice model and we will be able to process, store, and give out your fresh produce donations safely.
We appreciate that you are thinking of others, especially during this difficult time. We are doing the best to serve the increasing need in our community and our modified procedures are being done to maximize efficiency, speed, and safety for all.
If you have further questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for understanding.
