Keep your feeding ministries going if you possibly can: The need is growing, and your community knows your ministry as a source of support. These ministries are considered life-sustaining, and volunteers are exempt from shelter-in-place orders. Contact your regional food bank for help obtaining more food and guidance in distributing it safely. We have been working at the state and federal level to obtain waivers, guidance and funding to secure emergency food supplies and the ability to deliver it safely and quickly. If you need help finding volunteers, your regional food bank may be able to help, or list your need with PA211 GetHelp. To learn more and be added to the list of emergency feeding sites, please complete this survey.
