Harry Chapin Food Bank Cancels distributions due to Tropical Storm Elsa

Harry Chapin Food Bank Cancels distributions due to Tropical Storm Elsa 2054 1369 Harry Chapin Food Bank

Harry Chapin Food Bank regretfully cancels our drive-thru distributions scheduled for Wednesday, July 7, 2021. The impacted distributions were scheduled to be held at the Golden Gate Community Center located at 4701 Golden Gate Pkwy, Naples, FL 34116 and Feeding with Hope Ministries located in the John Boy Auditorium at 1200 W C Owen Ave, Clewiston, FL 33440. Our Fort Myers Distribution Center and our Collier County Center will remain open.

“The amount of coordination and logistics needed to hold a drive-thru distribution requires that we make predictions early on our ability to safely conduct the distributions. At this point, we believe our drive-thru distributions present a safety risk for all parties involved and that our other operations can be safely executed,” stated Richard LeBer, President and CEO of the food bank. “The safety of our drivers, volunteers, those whom we serve, and employees is the bedrock of our decision-making process.”

The food bank’s Senior Leadership team will continue to closely monitor Tropical Storm Elsa and respond as necessary.

Harry Chapin Food Bank is prepared to serve those most affected by this storm. Harry Chapin Food Bank is usually first on the scene to provide food and water to those who need it. Please continue to visit our website at harrychapinfoodbank.org for updates.
