COVENANT CUPBOARD FOOD DISTRIBUTION DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC/ información nueva sobre los procedimientos de distribución de alimentos para limitar la exposición al virus

Covenant Cupboard plans to be open on this Friday. Please read about food distribution procedures to limit virus exposure. Following is basic information regarding receiving food:

  • Covenant Cupboard will be using a drive-through pickup of pre-made food boxes for distribution between 1PM to 4 PM on Friday.
  • All drivers and any passengers should remain in your vehicle. If you are carpooling we will serve all households in that vehicle at one time. Existing and new clients join the same line of cars.
  • Enter the parking lot from the Yosemite Street entrance. Volunteers will direct traffic to form a line of cars in the parking lot. Loading will take place at the normal curb loading area. Be prepared for a long wait. Clear a space in your car to load the bags of food.
  • Before your vehicle gets to the load point you will be asked by a volunteer to present your ID.  We will check you in to our computer system remotely and you will be given a ticket to present at the loading area. Premade bags containing perishable and nonperishable items based on the size of your household will be ready for you at the loading area. Milk and eggs (if we have them) will be added to your distribution as your car is being loaded.
  • We hope we can all work together to make this system work smoothly.  One option we had for this pandemic was just to shut down the Pantry. This option was rejected because we still wish to help those of you in our community who really need help. We encourage you to check the website covcupboard.org for updates.

SEE YOU ON FRIDAY!!

 

Por favor, escuche esta información nueva sobre los procedimientos de distribución de alimentos para limitar la exposición al virus.

Covenant Cupboard planea abrir el viernes.

Esta es la información básica sobre la entrega de alimentos:

1. Covenant Cupboard cambiará a una recogida a través de paquetes de alimentos pre-rellenados con su distribución el viernes entre la 1 y las 4 de la tarde.

2. Los clientes nuevos y existentes estarán en la misma línea de coches.
Todos los conductores y pasajeros deben permanecer en su vehículo. Serviremos a todos los hogares en su vehículo a la misma vez.

3. Entre al aparcamiento por la entrada en la calle Yosemite. Los voluntarios dirigirán el tráfico para formar una línea de coches en el estacionamiento. La distribución se llevará en el área de carga normal del bordillo. Esté preparado para una espera larga. Deje espacio en su coche para cargar las bolsas de comida.

4. Antes de que su vehículo llegue al punto de carga un voluntario le pedirá que presente su documento de identidad. Se le preguntará si se puede incluir productos de cerdo en su distribución. Le registraremos en nuestro sistema informático de forma remota y se le dará un comprobante para presentar en el área de carga. Los paquetes prefabricados tendrán artículos basados en el tamaño de su hogar y estarán esperando a usted en el área de carga. La leche y los huevos (si los tenemos) se añadirán a su distribución cuando su coche está siendo cargado.

5. Esperamos que todos podamos trabajar juntos para que este sistema funcione sin problemas. Una opción que teníamos para esta pandemia era cerrar la despensa. Esta opción fue rechazada porque todavía deseamos ayudar a aquellos de ustedes en nuestra comunidad que realmente necesitan ayuda. Le recomendamos que consulte la página web covcupboard.org
para actualizaciones.

¡¡NOS VEMOS EL VIERNES!!

 

COVENANT CUPBOARD SERVICE DOG POLICY

Although Church facilities are specifically exempt from Service Dog regulations it is the policy of the Covenant Cupboard to allow these animals on site during food distributions if they are true Service animals.  No animal will be allowed on site if it exhibits vicious or uncontrollable behavior. We WILL be asking the following two questions allowed by the ADA act regarding service animals:

Where it is not obvious that the dog is a service animal, staff may ask only two specific questions: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability? and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform? Staff are not allowed to request any documentation for the dog, require that the dog demonstrate its task, or inquire about the nature of the person’s disability.          www.ADA.gov
