We want to communicate the following:

 

  1. The governor’s office has communicated that they understand how critical it is to ensure there is no lapse in food bank operations.
  2. According to the DHS, food banks are designated as “essential” (https://www.cisa.gov/sites/default/files/publications/CISA-Guidance-on-Essential-Critical-Infrastructure-Workers-1-20-508c.pdf). Under subsection, Food and Agriculture, the guidelines specifically include:
  • Employees and firms supporting food, feed, and beverage distribution, including warehouse workers, vendor managed inventory controllers and blockchain managers; and
  • Workers essential for assistance programs and government payments.
  1. By extension and in addition to Tarrant Area Food Bank’s “essential” designation, we are also designated “essential”.
  2. As a non-profit/social service provider, we are ordered to practice social distancing rather than closing entirely. (Please note from the governor’s order is referencing “social gatherings,” as opposed work gatherings).
  3. We are providing hunger relief, an essential function in this disaster relief in partnership with Tarrant Area Food Bank.
  4. We know it takes a force greater than 10 to ensure the food bank’s function. Under these conditions, we can continue to serve our communities, in the best possible way, taking necessary precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  5. To eliminate the need for close contact and to prevent the spread of COVID 19, we are adhering to the following rules:
    1. providing a drive-thru style pantry and place food for families in their trunks or backseat. (refer to the attached a best practice recommendation for drive-thru and walk-up food distribution)
    2. follow precautionary measures such as social distancing
    3. increased hand washing and hygiene practices
    4. follow all CDC advisory recommendations and stay informed of daily updates.
    5. Making sure that all volunteers are screened and complete a questionnaire about their health condition as it relates to COVID-19.

With everything going on it is easy to lose sight of the fact that we have a census count in progress. Census results are used to determine your representation in Congress, and they help inform how billions of dollars are distributed for hospitals, schools, roads, and more. The COVID-19 outbreak is a great illustrator of how important it is to make sure your community has the resources it requires to weather challenging circumstances.  Help ensure that everyone in your community is counted in the 2020 Census.
