Dear Food Rescue Heroes
You are an integral part of Prince William Food Rescue. Without you, we couldn't move the food that is donated into the hands of those in need in our community. Thank you for contributing your valuable time and energy to furthering our mission to end hunger and end food waste.
As an important source of food for people vulnerable to hunger, we have every intention of continuing our mission to eliminate hunger and reduce food waste every day, and especially in times of uncertainty.
We are encouraging all healthy staff and volunteers to continue to carry out food deliveries, but take precautions recommended by the CDC such as:
- “Social distancing” (refraining from shaking hands, for example)
- Frequent, thorough hand washing and use of hand sanitizer with an alcohol content of 60% or higher
- Avoid touching the face and mouth area.
- We also suggest using bleach disinfectant (such as Clorox wipes) to clean areas such as steering wheels of cars that are frequently touched.
As a reminder, we ask that you please stay home if you are sick. If you have a weekly rescue, requesting a substitute volunteer is very simple within the app. There are active volunteers that can "sub" in while you take the time to rest and get well.
It is important to be vigilant and take the necessary steps in order to prevent the spread of any contagious disease.
Thank you and please let us know if you have any questions,
The Prince William Food Rescue Team
Prince William Food rescue aims to address the disconnection in distribution-in supply and access-by rescuing food about to go to waste sand directly distributing to organizations that serve communities in need. Our goal is to move healthy foods from sanitation to sustainment.
