New Hybrid Distribution at OSFB

On September 16th, the Ocean Shores Food Bank rolled out a new option for guests, when they come to pickup their food.

Guests may continue to drive-up to collect their food (our current method) or they may now enter the food bank and choose for themselves which items they would like.

Upon entering the car line at the gates, an attendant will come to your car window and ask which method you prefer.

If you would like to come inside and shop, you will be directed to a parking spot inside the gates where you’ll then register for your household. There will be a tent outside for guests, while they wait their turn inside.

Harry valiantly holds down the counter to prevent it from floating away.

Only six people will be allowed in the shop at a time. An exception to this rule is that guests will be allowed to bring in accompanying small children. No pets are allowed inside; service animals only.

All guests will be required to wear masks regardless of vaccination status; this includes those who choose the drive-up option. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you.

Once inside, guests will be provided a sanitized basket for their food. A volunteer will be available to help you shop and guide you through the food bank.

Social distancing will be enforced. We want everyone to remain safe and healthy so we can continue to allow the indoor shopping option.

Once you have finished shopping, a wagoneer will help you to your car with your food. If you have books to pick up, the wagoneer will help you with that as well.

We hope you will enjoy this new option for picking up your food.
