SVdP Food Bank Closed Sept. 14 through Sept. 19
It has been brought to our attention that someone in the Georgetown Foodbank Warehouse complex has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus last week. In an effort to prevent further spread of the virus and protect the health and wellbeing of our employees, we have closed the Foodbank and donations at Georgetown from Monday, Sept. 14 through Friday, Sept. 18 to be cleaned and sanitized to ensure there is no further spread of the virus. In addition, we are asking all employees that may have visited the Georgetown Foodbank Warehouse complex to get tested and quarantine until they receive their test results.
Again, the building will be cleaned and sanitized to ensure there is no further spread of the virus. The health and wellbeing of our employees, volunteers, and neighbors is our first priority! Thank you.
We are now distributing boxes and bags of food through our truck docking station right near our front door. This procedure enables us to get our neighbors the food they need and strengthens social distancing to make certain everyone is safe!
Annually thousands of neighbors visit our Georgetown Food Bank & Community Service Center. We strive to serve everyone without regard to faith, religion, age, sex, national origin, creed, or color. We also have a special FACES program (Food, Assistance, Compassion & Emergency Services) every Friday that serves our neighbors experiencing homelessness.
We always accept your donations of non-perishable foods and personal hygiene items.
Health Assessments Postponed During COVID-19
Basic health care is a major concern for thousands of people in our King County communities. St. Vincent de Paul offers a basic health assessment program at our Georgetown Food Bank. We periodically offering free flu vaccinations, blood pressure checks and other health assessments during Food Bank Hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays (11am-2pm).
We will have a team of staff, volunteers, and service providers specifically charged with engaging neighbors at the SVdP Georgetown Food Bank as they come to get food on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Our team is trained to enable our neighbors to secure information about other food bank locations, housing assistance, help with utilities, health care, job readiness, education and other benefit areas that they may not know about. We will also refer our neighbors to other beneficial services that are available and with completing applications for enrollment in programs to receive services.
