COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

COVID-19 Policy | Update: February 2022

MCFB’s top priority is the safety and health of everyone. If you are experiencing illness (i.e., fever, chills, coughing, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, nausea or vomiting, runny nose, or congestion), please do not visit the food bank until you are feeling well.

Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing areas will continue in all areas of the food bank.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, MCFB recommends the following:

  • Masks are strongly encouraged especially in high traffic common areas such as sort rooms, meeting spaces, and break rooms, regardless of vaccine status.
  • Practice social distancing in all areas of the food bank whenever possible.
  • Frequent handwashing including before entry and after breaks.

In 2021, Montgomery County Food Bank served more than 55,800 people each month.
