distribution of food to clients in August
The Nazareth Area Food Bank plans to resume the distribution of food to clients in August after a four-month suspension of regular operations due to precautions taken over COVID-19.
Food will be given out on the morning and evening of Tuesday, Aug. 11, the morning of Wednesday, Aug. 12, and the morning of Saturday, Aug. 15.
The Food Bank is implementing new policies and procedures for its August distribution.
First, clients have been asked to pick one of the four sessions during which they will pick up their food. The sessions are 7:30 to 10 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month; 7:30 to 10 a.m. on the following Wednesday; and 9 to 11 a.m. on the following Saturday.
Also, clients are asked to stay in their cars when they arrive in the parking lot of the Food Bank building at 529 S. Main Street in Nazareth. A volunteer will ask clients their names and addresses and bags of groceries will be brought to clients' cars. This to protect both clients and volunteers.
Meantime, vegetables grown in the Food Bank garden are being distributed from 6 to 7 p.m. every Tuesday and from 9 to 11 a.m. every Saturday. Again, clients are asked to remain in their cars and volunteers will hand them a bag of vegetables.
Also, on Tuesday, Aug. 18, the Food Bank will resume accepting donations of non-perishable food items from 5:30 to 7 p.m. After that date, the regular food-donation sessions will be 5:30 to 7 p.m. every Tuesday and 9 to 11 a.m. every Friday and Saturday.
