Sequim Food Bank, 144 W. Alder St., made the shift to a drive-thru for visitors last week because of concerns about exposure to the coronavirus.
Visitors stayed in their vehicles, on their bicycles or walked through as volunteers offered them multiple items like pasta, produce, cereal, bread, milk and more for the “emergency food pickup system.” They wore gloves and tried to keep 6 feet away from visitors as the drive-thru carried on.
Executive Director Andra Smith said as the weeks carry on with the pandemic, the food bank will continue to be open for Sequim’s residents, whether they’ve used the food bank before or are first-timers.
Deliveries on Mondays are available by calling 360-683-1205 throughout the week and before 9 a.m. each Monday.
The Weekend Meal Program for children is available on Fridays at the Boys & Girls Clubs in Sequim, Elk Creek Apartments, Mountain View Court Apartments, Seabreeze Apartments from noon-1 p.m.; Greywolf Elementary School and Sequim Middle School 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., and at the food bank from 9 a.m.-noon Friday and Saturday.
The food bank opens 9 a.m.-noon Fridays and Saturdays, and 1-4 p.m. Mondays.
