Treasure Coast Food Bank – COVID 19 Updates

For those whose pantry is barely stocked and whose budget is stretched thin, it’s nearly impossible to plan for a pandemic like the coronavirus. As we take extra precautions with cleanliness and hygiene in our homes and workplaces, these simple measures may not be possible for others without our help – homebound seniors wonder how to get food and supplies, workers worry about missed wages, and families consider how lifting quarantine and the community re-opening will impact their daily lives.

In times like this, we bind together to make sure all members of our community are prepared for whatever situation arises.

Volunteer for an upcoming shift

Donate to coronavirus preparedness



In executing our relief efforts, we see an increased need for volunteers to sort & pack food in our warehouse before it is distributed to our neighbors. We have taken the following precautions to ensure volunteers are kept safe and healthy during their time with us:

  • Hand washing sinks and/or sanitizing stations are present in our entrance and volunteer sorting areas
  • Gloves are provided for every volunteer; masks are required
  • Volunteer areas and tables are thoroughly cleaned between each shift
  • Volunteers are encouraged to take additional breaks for hand washing regularly during their shift

Until the situation stabilizes, the need for our services will continue to increase – and we need your help to deploy these programs.


Treasure Coast Food Bank is taking the following measures to assist our neighbors:

  • Preparing and distributing boxes of shelf stable food that will feed a family of four for one week.
  • Increasing our mobile pantry distributions in response to many in our agency network who have paused or reduced open hours as their volunteer support shrinks during this time.
  • Sourcing hygiene and cleaning products for distribution at our community food pantries.
  • Preparing and delivering 1200+ meals daily for kids who do not have access to free and reduced meals due to school closure.
  • Processing fresh produce donated by local farmers.
  • Participating in the USDA Farmers-To-Families Food Box Program.
