COVID-19 Protocols

 

OPEN, SAFE, ACCESSIBLE

As the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated economic fallout continues, ensuring no one goes hungry is as important as ever. Everyone has different stresses and worries during this time; putting food on the table shouldn’t be one of them. We have heard from many clients that the food support they have received from us has had an incredible impact on their families, budgets, and mental health.

 

Hamper demand remains high as we continue to live with the pandemic. Processes we implemented in the early days and refined throughout the year remain in place including increased hamper sizes, relaxed eligibility for subsequent hampers, opening more volunteer shifts, and requiring masks and physical distancing inside the Food Bank.

 

COVID-19 HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Our top priority is to keep our staff, volunteers, clients, guests, and agency partners safe so we can continue providing emergency food support. Removing or reducing our safety protocols would increase risk unnecessarily, so out of an abundance of caution we are staying the course for a bit longer. 

This includes:  

  • We continue to require masks for staff, volunteers, clients, and visitors until March 31 when we review information from Alberta Health Services.
  • Our mandatory vaccination policy, instituted September 29, 2021, remains in place for all staff and volunteers.  
  • Social distancing remains an important part of our ongoing protocol and six feet of distance between others will continue as standard practice for staff, volunteers, and clients.  

We sincerely appreciate your cooperation, understanding, and support. 

In the spirit of reconciliation, the Calgary Food Bank acknowledges that we live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
