SCFBS Coronavirus Response Update
In response to the arrival of COVID-19 in our community, Stanwood Camano Food Bank Services will continue providing all services while limiting the potential spread of the Coronavirus among staff, volunteers, clients and the community. At Stanwood Camano Food Bank Services, we are committed to the following:
- The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, family members, clients and community is our top priority
- We will actively communicate factual information to our staff, volunteers, guests, and when possible, to clients and passengers
- We will work together to ensure that every employee and volunteer understands their role and how they can help
- We will keep our facilities environmentally clean and focused on good hygiene practices
- We not discriminate based on false stereotypes
- We will do everything we can to continue to serve clients and vulnerable populations
The Stanwood Camano Thrift Store will be open for business. Stanwood Camano Food Bank will be providing all services, but the facility itself will be closed to the public. The food bank will continue to provide groceries at a clearly marked area in pre-packed boxes in order to limit exposure for clients, staff and volunteers. Client members will drive to the designated ‘pick up area’ once their food is ready to take home.
It is our commitment to prioritize safety and health for all our community, while providing services to our clients. Together we are taking proactive steps in responding to an unprecedented challenge. These actions are all intended to help keep staff, volunteers, clients and the community safe, while allowing us to continue providing services that are critical for a vulnerable population at a time of high community need.
Viruses don’t discriminate: Coronavirus doesn’t recognize race, nationality or ethnicity. Discrimination based on ethnicity or ancestry will make the situation worse. As an agency that values diversity equity, diversity and inclusion, these types of profiling have no place in our community.
