Details:

The Broad Street Food Pantry is helping neighbors put healthy meals on their tables – providing food for bodies, relief to minds, and nourishment for souls. The pantry is continuing to serve the community to the best of their ability amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, they are feeding 40-45 families a day by preparing food boxes that are picked up at the pantry.

 

Join Besa and Broad Street Food Pantry to help provide food to seniors in crisis. As a volunteer, we'll pack food boxes, load them on a van, and distribute them to seniors living in Poindexter Place, an affordable senior living facility. Once the food is packed and loaded, volunteers will drive to Poindexter Place to help distribute the food. Poindexter Place is located approximately 1 mile from Broad Street Food Pantry.

 

The pantry will provide gloves, hand sanitizer, and we'll also practice social distancingLimited client interaction will take place during this volunteer event. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 

 

Officials still strongly recommend that people remain at home when possible and limit gathering sizes. Volunteers, however, continue to be needed now more than ever. That means our critical-need projects, as well as those of our partner agencies, are still happening. And healthy and willing volunteers are needed.
