The Food Bank of the Golden Crescent, which serves 11 counties and 5 million meals a year to the Crossroads has had to delay mobile operations due to positive COVID testing results within the FBGC administration community.

The FBGC working along with their board and local health institutions, concluded they would have to postpone operations, like their mobile units, until January 25th.

Mobile units that were scheduled for January 15th through the 21st have been postponed. The mobile units scheduled for Jan.15th, 18th, 20th, and 21st will be rescheduled while agencies that work with the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent will still receive their warehouse distributions.

Crossroads Today reports, “The Food Bank has frequently used commercial grade sanitizing spray throughout the facility since the first positive test result was received last week, and will be bringing in a professional cleaning service to fully clean the Food Bank’s warehouse and office facilities. Also, as has been said previously, since COVID-19 is not a foodborne disease, the food products distributed by the Food Bank remain consistently safe for public consumption and we look forward to resuming our distribution of food when staffing conditions can once again fully support it,” said Angela Hartmann, the Food Bank Board Chair.

Staff are still able to assist clients in applying for SNAP, TENAF and other social services by contacting Jesse Olivarez at jolivarez@foodbankgc.org or Ersilia Garcia at egarcia@foodbankgc.org for assistance.

The Food Bank of the Golden Crescent is responding to emails if you have questions.
