Parkdale Community Food Bank continues to service clients during this challenging time for our community. We are also following Public Health Ontario guidelines and taking additional precautions to keep our employees, volunteers and clients safe. In addition to regular cleaning and disinfection practices we are implementing social distancing measures at our Queen West location. We are also creating programs to reach our most vulnerable clients in time of social isolation.
The food bank is currently open regular hours. In support of social distancing, we have temporarily suspended the shopping model and are creating hampers for our clients that are distributed at street level.
We ask that all clients receive hampers at street level, keeping a safe distance (6 feet) from one another. Our staff will be taking names at the door, no advance sign-up is needed. We ask for your support and cooperation during this time while we implement these changes.
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 we ask that you stay home. If you are elderly, unable to leave your home for health reasons or are in self-isolation due to other circumstances please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange delivery for you with our partners.
We want to thank our amazing community, donors and volunteers who have exhibited extraordinary kindness, compassion and generosity during this challenging time. We expect to see an influx of clients in the coming weeks and months and ask that you consider donating if you are able. Donate here.
