Minor changes to Kapuskasing Foodbank due to COVID-19,

It’s business as usual for the Kapuskasing Foodbank as they help to serve the less fortunate in the community. Chairman Rick Bartlett says the concerns over COVID-19 have forced them to make some minor changes in the way they help.

“We have reduced the number of volunteers from nine to three, with clients being served on a one-on-one basis,” he said. “Our foodbank will be opened an hour earlier so those don’t have to wait too long outside. We have a system in place where clients can come in and do their shopping and grab items as quickly as possible.”

Bartlett says even though they’ve been quite busy in the past seven days, the Foodbank will be able to push through these difficult times.

“It definitely took a bit of a dent in our inventory and we are trying to replenish that now as time goes on,” he said. “The community has been so incredibly generous in the past and that will allow us not to want a bunch of extra stuff. We are doing okay for right now.”
