Those in need of food assistance are in luck.
The Virginia Peninsula Foodbank has created drive-thru food pantry sites with social distancing measures on the Peninsula.
“Due to the increase in need of food assistance during this time of emergency, the Foodbank will distribute food at the following locations,” according to the foodbank’s announcement.
Gov. Ralph Northam said Monday, U.S. Department of Agriculture will now give anyone food donations.
“We recommend calling the partner agency prior to visiting to confirm hours of operation,” the website read. “Distribution plans are changing quickly and without much notice.”
Those who plan to get food donations must clean out their trunk so volunteers can place the food directly inside the recipient’s car. During the drive-thru transaction, you must remain in your car and no walk-ups are allowed, according to the foodbank’s website.
You can send monetary donations to the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank here.
