Food Bank of the Golden Crescent COVID-19 (coronavirus) Update

revised June 29, 2020

The Food Bank of the Golden Crescent has been closely monitoring the developments related to COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our world, country, state, and specifically in our service areas. The health and well-being of our clients, volunteers, and our staff is vital to FBGC. For this reason, and to comply with the City of Victoria's order of June 25, anyone entering the doors of the Food Bank is required to wear a mask. FBGC will continue to carefully assess the situation and will respond accordingly.

We want to assure our community that the Food Bank is open and operating with a full staff to serve the needs of people facing hunger in the Golden Crescent. We have taken precautionary measures to ensure the health safety of all who work and visit the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent. Hand sanitizer stations have been set up in our lobby, warehouse, and offices to be used by anyone who visits our facility. Our staff has been working diligently to keep all common and high volume areas clean and sanitized throughout the day.

We will continue to treat everyone who visits FBGC, our mobile pantry distributions, or any of our partner agencies with respect and dignity. Coronavirus does not target specific populations, ethnicities, socioeconomic status, or racial backgrounds. 

We welcome the community to VOLUNTEER in helping to pack Emergency Food Boxes. If you are unable to volunteer your time, we ask that you consider a donation to help fill the needs of families in need. All volunteers are required to wear a mask. Please be vigilant in sanitizing/handwashing at home, work, and when visiting any public places such as the Food Bank. We ask that you stay home if you have symptoms.  

We will continue to monitor the situation, and as we learn more, our current health safety measures may change. We will update the community as needed. To stay current with updates in regards to COVID-19, we ask that you visit your local county health department sites, the Texas Department of State Health Services, or the Centers for Disease Control.
