Drop-Knock-Leave COVID-19 Food Relief

During this unprecedented time of cancellations, closures and social distancing, there are families in our community who are struggling with food insecurity.  When this all first began, we were referring our volunteers to some already existing feeding programs at nonprofits, schools and churches.  These organizations are doing amazing work, but it is inevitable that people have and are slipping through the cracks for a number of reasons.  As those in need are being identified and vetted by teachers, social workers and case managers, our goal is simply to ensure no one is going without food.  We believe there's enough food in our community for everyone.

We launched the Drop-Knock-Leave initiative on March 21st.  Since this time, our numbers have grown 500%.  We're now supporting more than 175 local families, with 400+ children, every week.  We have been blown away by the outpouring of volunteer support for this life giving initiative.  

When you sign up to volunteer, you will also be asked to identify a second person who will be volunteering with you.  We suggest you partner with someone from your household or with whom you have been in close proximity.   All volinteer registrations must be completed by someone 18 years of age or older. We are asking every volunteer to agree with the CDC volunteer recommendations and safety standards. 

Due to social distancing guidelines, we are having to stagger pick up times between 10am-12pm.  We will notify you on the day before your shift of a specific time for your pick up. The delivery routes typically take less than 90 minutes to complete.
