NEW ENTRY POINT TO DRIVE THRU QUE

Starting Friday Sept. 9th all clients and afternoon cupboard volunteers should enter the parking lot at the Crestline Ave entrance.  This change in our procedure is being done because the preschool, also located in the church, is now in session.  It is important that we do not interfer with the pickup of these children by their parents for the safety of all the children.  Thank you.

New Diaper Distribution Starting at the Cupboard

Covenant Cupboard, in partnership with WeeCycle, is starting a program to supply diapers to families with young children.  You need to be a registered client with young children (ages 0 to 4) living in your household and the children must be registered at the Cupboard as part of your family.  You will order your diapers (amount may vary by month) during a visit to the Cupboard in the early or middle part of a month for delivery to you at the Cupboard on the 1st or 2nd Friday of the next month.

Example:  Order on or before May 20th for delivery on June 3rd or 10th.

Families that request a form may fill it out before the check in point and turn it in at the load point.  Diapers will be delivered to you on when you visit the pantry early in the next month.

Covenant Cupboard, en asociación con WeeCycle, está comenzando un programa para suministrar pañales a familias con niños pequeños.  Debe ser un cliente registrado con niños pequeños (de 0 a 4 años) que viven en su hogar y los niños deben estar registrados en el armario como parte de su familia.  Ordenará sus pañales (la cantidad puede variar según el mes) durante una visita al Armario a principios o mediados de un mes para que se los entregue en el Armario el 1er o 2do viernes del próximo mes. Ejemplo: Ordene a más tardar el 20 de mayo para su entrega el 3 o 10 de junio. Las familias que soliciten un formulario podrán rellenarlo antes del punto de check-in y entregarlo en el punto de carga.  Los pañales se le entregarán cuando visite la despensa a principios del próximo mes.

 

Return to Drive Thru Food Distribution

Do to the recent increase in Covid Cases the Cupboard has decided to return a drive thru type of distribution starting Friday January 7th. Most of you know the routine. You must enter the parking lot from the Yosemite St. entrance and form two lines of vehicles stopping where directed. There will be two check-in volunteers that will motion you forward when they are ready. The volunteers  will be in contact with the inside check-in team and record your visit in our computer system. Please have your id or client numbers available to  show the volunteer. A number will be written on your windshield which will correspond to your inside cart that will be in the process of being loaded.  The cart will be brought out to your vehicle. Please have your trunk or lift gate open and ready to receive the food.

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
