The Mukilteo Food Bank is taking steps to protect its clients and volunteers in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The food bank operates out of the Mukilteo Presbyterian Church and is open twice a month. Many clients of the food bank and volunteers are over 60 years of age, a group that the Snohomish Health District describes as being at high risk from the coronavirus.
In order to protect both groups, food bank staff consulted with state and Snohomish County authorities and changed its process for the distribution of food in order to minimize contact between volunteers and clients.
