For most of the neighbors on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis food assistance is vital; they can’t go without basic necessities and we need to continue to serve them. Covid-19 doesn’t stop the need of many families who already face daily challenges in the surrounding community. Westminster Neighborhood Services is taking steps to ensure the safety of our neighbors, staff, and volunteers while still serving those in need. We need your help to continue serving our neighbors.
Distribution at Westminster Neighborhood Services Food Pantry has been modified to a walk-up distribution. Neighbors will have the choice of protein and fresh produce to choose from along with pre-bagged food from the pantry. Food distribution times will remain the same; Mondays 9:00am to 12:00pm and Thursdays 8:30am to 11:30am. The same process will be in place for our Senior Shopping Day; open on the third Wednesday of every month to anyone 55 and older living in Marion County.
At this point in time Westminster plans to keep these procedures in place until April 6th. We are also keeping a close eye on the development of the Covid-19 virus and will continue to modify procedures are needed.
Volunteers are needed to prepare the bags and help with distribution; to help reach out to our volunteer coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be keeping volunteer numbers low and ask if you are showing signs of sickness to please stay home to keep everyone safe.
Your donation today can make a huge difference in the lives of the neighbors who are facing increased challenges in feeding their families. You can ensure that our walk-up food distribution will be available for any neighbor who needs it. Donate here today and make sure that all neighbors have access to the food and help they so desperately need.
