I’m certain we speak for everybody when we heave a giant sigh as we change the calendars to 2021! In the New Year, we are updating Thurston County Food Bank’s visit structure.
As you may be aware, when COVID first struck, we changed not only our distribution model, but visit structure. We changed the visits from set counts and defined visits – to “unlimited” visits in the pre-bagged/boxed model. This was done in response to COVID – and all that the pandemic brought.
Beginning January 4, 2021, the visit structure will change to a maximum visit of
1 VISIT PER WEEK – PER HOUSEHOLD.
We will continue to operate distributing pre-bagged/boxed foods using our drive-up distribution models(as well as walk-up at our Client Service Center for those without vehicles, on foot or taking busses). It should be also noted, Thurston County Food Bank continues to need volunteers at all locations as we enter 2021. Through everything our Community has been through this past year, we are grateful for the phenomenal people we have around us – supporting each other through these difficult times.
It has been a whirlwind of a year!
The staff at the Thurston County Food Bank would like to wish you all a peaceful, health-filled and restorative Holiday!
Thank you for ALL the support we have received – donations, volunteers, and encouraging words — they have kept us strong and going.
Friendly Reminder: we will be closed for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day
December 24 & 25 (Thursday & Friday)
December 31 & January 1 (Thursday & Friday)
We are excited to turn the calendars and start a clean, brand-spankin’ new year with you all by our sides!
Thurston County Food Bank will be closed Thursday and Friday (11/26, 11/27) this week to reflect and rest.
This has been quite a year!
And, through it all, we have so much to be thankful for. To begin with, through all the trials of 2020, we have witnessed firsthand the generosity and kindness of our community coming together to support and care for one another.
What an astounding place this is!!
We hope you and your loved ones are able to enjoy the next several days as you reflect on those around you and all the things you are thankful for.
Wishing you and those close a healthy and safe Thanksgiving.
