Message from Freedom house (formerly Walls of Freedom)
We have seen a huge increase in number from our normal breakfast program which feeds 45 people on average daily. Last Wednesday we distributed 120 packs. We expect this number to stay high due to other organizations closing or cutting back on services.
Freedom House has suspended all of our gatherings, but we acknowledge that there is still a need in our community. We want to continue to provide meals and a foodbank that is much needed in the community we serve.
Contact Derrick for ways to help:
1. Food supplies: Milk, juice, pasta, sauce, canned meats/veggies, bread
2. We need 4-5 volunteers/days and times are – Sunday 3 to 4 pm, Tuesday & Wednesday 10 to 11 am. These volunteers will be pre-packing lunches. The lunches will later be distributed by staff outside the building.
For the volunteer work space we have created a spread out workflow system in our kitchen and dining hall area to ensure that our team that is preparing and packing food are at least 2 meters apart from each other. All of our team are required to wash their hands every 20 minutes and have to use gloves at all times.
Please note that we take the warning and instructions from Government and health authorities very seriously, to this end we have taken the above steps to ensure that we adhere to protocols and to safeguard our volunteers and community.
