The Comox Valley Food Bank is going to be providing much-needed food to the community again.
The organization says it will be reopening its doors tomorrow at 9:30am.
The service posted to is Facebook explaining it will be following new and never before used methods to make sure people can safely get what they need.
“We ask for your patience as we implement new provincial health authority protocols that will significantly change the way in which we distribute food to our clients. However, these new protocols are necessary and will help to ensure your safety as well as the safety of our staff and volunteers,” read the statement.
The MyComoxValleyNow.com newsroom spoke with President Mitch Moncrieff last week when he announced that the center would be closing temporarily.
He said he wanted to keep the food bank open but procedures would need to be revamped and updated.
“The way we were doing things, I didn’t feel that we were at a high enough level that I could 100 per cent say everybody was safe,” said Moncrieff.
A separate Facebook post explained what donations the foodbank needs right now including pasta, rice, and non-perishable canned goods.
The Comox Valley Food Bank will have a table set up outside its doors at 1491 McPhee Avenue from 9:30 to noon tomorrow.
