The Willamina Civic Club and the City of Willamina have joined forces to ensure that Willamina area residents who are unable to leave their homes during the Coronavirus outbreak will still have access to the Willamina Community Food Pantry distribution. The CDC and the Oregon Health Authority recommend that people over 60, those who are immune-compromised, or have certain other chronic health conditions remain in their homes.
If this describes you, and you need the services of the Food Pantry, please call the City of Willamina at 503-876-2242 between the hours of 8:00-12:30 and 1:30-5:00 and ask to be added to the HOME DELIVERY list. Home deliveries will occur between 8am and 5pm EACH THURSDAY. Please call by 5pm on Wednesday to be added to the following day’s delivery. (You’ll only need to call in once to be added to this ongoing delivery service until sheltering in place is no longer necessary.)
The delivery person will knock or ring your bell, step back from the door, and wait for you to come to the door to acknowledge delivery. If you do not come to the door, your package will still be left, BUT perishables (meat, eggs, etc.) will be removed from the bag for food safety reasons. So please make every effort to come to the door to acknowledge delivery. For your safety, and the safety of others, the delivery person can not enter your home.
Because our volunteer resources are limited, we ask that only those patrons who are unable to leave their homes due to age or illness utilize this delivery service. For everyone else, please continue to access the Food Pantry during our regularly scheduled pantry hours every WEDNESDAY from 4pm to 6pm. Our address is at 340 B Street. We will be handing out pre-packed bags of shelf-stable items, bread, produce and protein. For your safety, and the safety of our volunteers, we ask that you not congregate in front of the building, but instead form a line on the sidewalk, being sure to maintain a minimum of 6 feet from other patrons.
Finally, the Willamina Community Food Pantry would not be possible without the generous support of our community. If you are able to make a food or financial contribution, please reach out to the Willamina Civic Club at firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message on Facebook. Thank you for your support.
