South Corvallis Food Bank COVID-19 Response Updated 3/17

If You Need Food

The South Corvallis Food Bank will remain open during its normal hours:

        Monday            1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
        Wednesday      1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.      
        Thursday          5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
        Saturday         10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon

We are changing our procedures for the duration of this public health crisis.

You will be asked to wait outside the food bank.

We regret we will not be offering shopping selection for shelf-stable items. You will receive a prepacked box of these items. We will accommodate special dietary needs as much as we can. You will be able to indicate your preferences for refrigerated and frozen items as well as your bread and produce.

A volunteer will bring your food outside to you.

When possible, we ask that you leave most household members at home and only one person come to the food bank to pick up your food.

We will continue to offer a selection of bread, produce, and a few shelf-stable extras for weekly shoppers. You will indicate their choices to a volunteer who will bring the items outside to you.

The South Corvallis Food Bank is an equal

opportunity provider.

Volunteers needed

Many of our loyal volunteers are over 60, making them members of a vulnerable population and unable to serve during this public health crisis. If you are healthy and off work or school, we could use help.

Volunteers are needed to pack boxes:
         Mondays 10am-noon
         Thursdays 2pm-4pm.

Volunteers are also needed to pack boxes and take groceries outside to clients:

        Monday            12:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
        Wednesday      12:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.      
        Thursday          4:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
        Saturday           9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Youth ages 12 and up are welcome with their guardian's permission.

Donations needed

The unexpected change to pre-packed boxes means we could use:

                minimum 12" high by 12" wide by 12"deep
                maximum 18” high by 18” wide by 16” deep
                grocery bags also welcome
        utility carts to load boxes

To prevent transmission within the food bank, we could use:

        hand sanitizer
        disinfecting wipes

We currently have a fairly good selection of food. We could use:
        instant side dishes (rice-a-roni, stuffing mix, etc.)
        hearty soups
        toilet paper
        feminine hygiene products
