|Industry Leadership|Canlis, one of Seattle's most admired restaurants, is not tone deaf or blind to reality. They are providing leadership in time of crisis like hundreds of other local businesses in Food & Beverage, Hospitality, Tourism, Entertainment and Events. Those who are not providing, preparing, or serving the food can reciprocate by staying home when not feeling well, washing their hands before meals, and maintaining distance from others for a month or two. At this point, nobody should be coughing or sneezing without covering up, but some people are still not with the program:-(To learn what Canlis is doing and for recommendations of places to eat in a coronavirus world, check out this Seattle magazine article www.seattlemag.com/restaurants/where-eat-out-during-covid-19-outbreak ...

Seattle, WA -- Mar 28, 2020

In an effort to keep everyone healthy we will be implementing the following changes this coming week, 3/30. More info on our website. Thank you for your patience as we do our best to help our neighbors access food! Ways to receive food:• Home Delivery Tues/Wed/Thurs: We are temporarily expanding our home delivery program. Food will be dropped off at your front door. To sign up for this program enroll at the link on our website (preferred) or call the number listed. • Drive Thru Food Bank Mon/Wed/Thurs: Folks may visit once per week. We are using the Café Mox parking lot next to the food bank. Cars will enter from Leary into the lot. They will join a car queue and when it’s their turn, volunteers will load a pre-packed food box into their trunk or car without requiring person to person contact. You will have the choice of protein, dairy, milk and eggs. Please stay in your car and do not park. This will be drive thru only. Please drive safely and don’t block the sidewalk. Numbers will not be handed out. • No-Cook Bags/Groceries: We will continue to offer no cook bags/groceries to our neighbors who are homeless. These will be offered at the side door of the food bank on NW Ione Place. People will line up on the sidewalk on Ione. To maintain social distance of 6 feet, please stand on the X’s marked on the sidewalk. Numbers will not be handed out. • Weekend Food For Kids: If you are picking up Weekend Food for Kids bag for your child please come to the front door or if you are driving through for groceries you may ask for a Weekend Food For Kids bag. Please show us your voucher. There will be an exception this week for folks who show up for grocery bags on foot or by bus. If you have an address we will enroll you in Home Delivery or ask that you use the Drive Thru the following week. Mail and sandwiches will be offered at the front door during our regular hours. ...
