Temporary Closure, March 26, 2020
Philabundance will be closed and operations cease on Thursday, March 26 and Friday, March 27 out of an abundance of caution for its staff, volunteers and the public. At this time, no staff have tested positive for Coronavirus or suspect that they might have it.
On Wednesday, March 25, a staff member informed administration about having come into contact with someone 11 days ago who has now tested positive for Coronavirus; the staff member has no symptoms of the virus and has placed themselves under quarantine. The same day, a second employee informed administration that someone in their household has a fever. This staff member has exhibited no symptoms and has also placed themselves under quarantine.
Both warehouses, including the South Philly location on Galloway Street and the North Philadelphia location on Berks Street, will be closed for two days to undergo a specialized cleaning regimen. The closure will cause a delay in food delivery.
We anticipate re-opening on Monday, March 30 and resuming emergency food distributions immediately.
