MADISON, WIs (SPECTRUM NEWS) -- Dane County’s largest and busiest food pantry taking unprecedented measures to keep patrons and volunteers safe during the CO-VID19 crisis.
River Food Pantry’s CEO Charles McLimans says the non-profit is ending hot meal service and its’ senior distribution session to extend market hours for anyone in need. McLimans says if patrons are sick, the organization has a way to address that too.
"People can ask for a neighbor somebody can come in and shop as proxy for them, and so we want people to understand that," McLimans said.
The River Food Pantry will only admitting 25 individuals into the location at a time, and is ramping up sanitization of surface areas and shopping carts to keep everyone healthy.
McLimans says currently the site has no worries of running out of food, but toilet paper and personal hygiene products are items they can’t keep on the shelves. You can learn how to donate to their efforts, here.
