Officials said participants should only bring one member of the household and stay in their vehicle during the pickup. The food bank also is asking participants to make sure their trunks are cleared out so volunteers can load food with minimal interaction.

Additionally, the food bank said in a news release it’s in need of volunteers to assist with the packing of food boxes and to assist in distribution.

The organization also needs donations of cash to buy supplies like the extra boxes needed with the increase in demand for services.
