Rebuilding Together Solano County continues to serve low income
Veterans, people with disabilities and citizens of Vallejo and Solano
County. The Food Bank of Solano County is now partnering with RTSC to
donate food each week (sometimes over 1,000 pounds each week) that we
include in the giveaway. In addition, Costco continues to donate food
twice a week.
The Covid19 pandemic has resulted in changes to our process. That process is now as follows. Each Wednesday and Thursday a group of 10-12 RTSC volunteers work together to sort and fill boxes that will be given to our recipients who drive through the parking lot. Food is placed in their vehicles and they do not have to even exit their cars. (NOTE: the same volunteers work each week to avoid introducing different people into the working mix.) All workers are masked and gloved, and our temperatures are taken and recorded each morning.
On Thursday, volunteers drive to house-bound recipient's homes and deliver two days' worth of the food to their front porches. Our number of recipients has now increased to 70 each day.
