Letter to the Editor: Allamakee County Food Shelf is here to help

To the Editor:

This has been a very difficult and unusual year. Have you, or do you know of someone who has, become food insecure because of the pandemic? We at the food shelf can help.

All that is required is a photo ID. If you don’t have one, a bill with your name and address will do. This is to verify you are who you say you are.

If you are afraid of the COVID-19 virus, we follow all procedures. You stay in your vehicle and we bring out the food. You have some decisions on what you want, but a volunteer comes out to ask you for those choices. All volunteers wear a mask.

We are open every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. If you have more questions, come and ask them.

We are closed on holidays that fall on Thursday and when school is closed in the winter time because of weather. Our volunteers are retirees and we don’t feel they should be on the roads at that time, either. If school is delayed, we are there.
