In order to comply with social distancing laws and to ensure the safety of both you and our volunteers, we have put together a list of ways to help out while staying safe:
• Touchless bag/box pickup - Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a touchless pickup if you are able to harvest your produce on your own. Put the produce in a cardboard box or sturdy bag that you do not need. We request that if the produce is easily squished, you put the produce in a single layer in a box.
• Masked harvesting - If you are unable to harvest on your own or would rather we harvest for you, email us to arrange a time to harvest your produce. Trees must be accessible from the outside (we will not enter your home). If you are outside with our volunteers, please wear a face covering and maintain at least 6 feet of distance. Our volunteers will wear face masks as well.
The SF-Marin Food Bank is currently lacking volunteers due to COVID and it is hard for them to handle small donations of fresh produce. We are trying to schedule harvests and pickups for the weekend so we can do bulk delivery to the warehouse on Monday.
