Vegreville Food Bank Makes Operating Changes

The Vegreville Food Bank is limiting access due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak

To minimize the spread of COVID-19, clients will be asked to book an appointment by phone during open hours.

Clients will come in one at a time to apply for a hamper at their appointment time, and be required to sanitize their hands.

Coordinator of the Vegreville Food Bank Society, Joanna Karczmarek, says that they are also requesting people change the way they donate.

Karczmarek adds that clients showing symptoms should self isolate and phone the Food Bank to arrange to have a family member who is not showing symptoms to receive the hamper on their behalf.

Wednesday office hours for general inquiries and donations will also be by appointment.
