ROSSLAND FOOD BANK ANNOUNCEMENT

 

The Rossland Food Bank would like to reaffirm our commitment to the residents of Rossland that we are here to help our community during challenging times. The COVID-19 pandemic is causing hardship for people everywhere and that includes financial uncertainty for many people in Rossland. We would like to encourage and support those persons who are in need and who would benefit from our services and announce that for the foreseeable future we will be open for all clients to shop with us weekly. The Food Bank is located at 1860 2nd Avenue (South side of the Rossland Arena) and will be open each Monday evening from 5pm-7pm and Tuesday from 10am-12 noon.

 

As a way to minimize the health risks associated with the Coronavirus, we have developed new procedures for both our volunteers and clients and ask that all those attending the Food Bank follow these procedures to help keep everybody as safe as possible. For our shoppers, this means that you will no longer be allowed to enter the Food Bank building and we ask that you do not bring your own shopping bags with you from home.

 

If you’re interested in helping with the Food Bank by making a donation or volunteering your time, please contact us by email at rosslandfoodbank@gmail.com. We also welcome and appreciate donations of non-perishable food items at the drop-off point in Ferraro Foods.

 

  

New Procedure for Food Bank shoppers

 

  • ·         When you arrive at the Food Bank please approach the table which will be set up across the door in which you would usually enter.

 

  • ·         Sign in with the volunteer at the table. If you are new to the Rossland Food Bank, you will be able to register with a volunteer for our services.

 

  • ·         You will be handed a shopping list where you can tick off the items you would like for the week. Return the shopping list to the volunteer.

 

  • ·         Wait outside while a volunteer will gather your requested items and put them in shopping bags for you. These bags will then be brought back outside for you.

 

  • ·         Enjoy your food and remember that you can now shop with us every week!
