Edmonds Food Bank still open | Letter to the Editor
Last updated 11/13/2020 at 5:09pm
Our goal at Edmonds Food Bank during COVID-19 is to protect our volunteers and customers above all.
We want to thank Edmonds United Methodist Church for their immediate and comprehensive response to having a parent of a Children's Center student tested positive this week.
As we are on the same property as the Children's Center and with an abundance of caution, we have completed a deep cleaning of the food bank. We have verified that these individuals were not in any part of the food bank and after completing contact tracing on any possible intersections, we are now assured that the food bank is safe.
Further, we have worked with Mindy Woods, Human Services project manager for the city of Edmonds, and the Snohomish Health District to review our situation and response. Based on that review, we are confident that we can safely open for distribution during our normal hours on Monday and Tuesday, and maintain our normal operations.
We will continue to require that anyone on the property during food bank distribution wear masks at all times, even when they are sitting in their vehicles. We hope that all those impacted in this pandemic find support and recovery.
We will continue to work diligently to ensure that we meet all COVID-19 safety requirements to protect our volunteers and customers. They are our most important concern.
