What Precautions is Care and Share Taking?
At our food bank, all volunteers are asked to wash their hands as they enter the building. In accordance with the governor's most recent guidelines (May 2021), masks are optional inside our Colorado Springs and Pueblo distribution centers. Masks will still be required for neighbors, staff, and volunteers to wear at our Sunny Side Market locations.
