Memo re COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
We value you, our volunteers. Your work is critical in getting healthy food out to vulnerable populations, and your wellbeing is important to us. If you feel sick, please stay home to reduce the risk of spreading illness. If you need to cancel a volunteer shift, please contact our Volunteer Coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have taken precautions to help ensure staff and volunteers stay safe during their shifts.
Update February 28, 2022: The CDC has updated their mask guidelines. The Food Bank has been following CDC guidelines throughout the pandemic and will be following these new recommendations. The requirement to wear a mask is still dependent upon Community COVID-19 Transmission Levels. Currently, the transmission rate in Albany allows for masks to be optional when visiting our facility. Please wear a mask based on your personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk.
We will continue to monitor and update everyone if/when things change. Please let us know if you have any questions.
