Pantry/partner agency updates – COVID-19

Partner Agency closures/schedule changes in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

We will update this as we hear of agency closures.

 

FFLC Programs & Partners

Last update 3/27/20 at 6:00 pm.

Food banks, food pantries, congregate meal sites, and similar hunger-relief programs are considered essential services and are exempt from Governor Kate Brown’s orders to Stay Home, Save Lives, as well as the restrictions on public gatherings and food service facilities.

FOOD for Lane County (FFLC) continues to distribute food to our network of partner agencies. We are in regular contact with our partners to monitor for any closures or changes to normal operations. Additionally, we continue to receive updates from Lane County health officials, Oregon Health Authority, and Oregon Food Bank.
