Tuesdays & Fridays from 12 - 4 PM
It's happening; Helpline House's inventive food bank team announced the opening of the Outdoor Market!
Helpline House's food bank manager moved forward earlier this month with careful plans and a team of staff and volunteers to set up the new self service market for shoppers. The refreshing look in shoppers' eyes on a sunny spring morning was clear that the process was stress-free as they selected their groceries. "We are so grateful for everyone's patience and support as staff and volunteers continue to prioritize the safety of everyone that visits Helpline House", the food bank manager shared.
Helpline House thanks the Tuesday & Friday shoppers in advance for wearing their face coverings and social distancing upon check-in. We're looking forward to seeing your smiling eyes. Please find more highlights for the Outdoor Market on our food bank webpage here.
Welcome to a quick look at the Outdoor Market:
Oh! Wait. Curbside pickup is available on Mondays & Thursdays between 12 - 4 PM. There are no plans to discontinue the contactless loading of prepacked groceries into cars. Also, our partners at Island Volunteer Care Givers (IVC) are still providing home delivery to those who call IVC at 206.842.4441 and request groceries on the weekdays.
