Due to the coronavirus, we have created a protocol to protect those volunteering for this project.
• Drivers and riders must wear masks during delivery.
• Drivers and riders must stay in their cars throughout the loading process.
• Drivers in route to delivery will call the contact number, give an estimate of arrival time and explain the following process of delivery.
o The food will be placed on the doorstep or ground near the door. The driver will knock quickly to notify the resident of arrival and get back in their vehicle. Drivers will not leave the food if there isn’t anyone home.
• All car loaders must wear masks and gloves and use hand sanitizer.
• Volunteers must maintain appropriate social distancing.
