One of Park City Initiative Corp.'s outreaches is the Bishop Jean Williams Food Pantry. COVID-19 forced us to change our client choice pantry to a drive thru style. We now pre-pack the groceries given to each family during their weekly shopping visit to us. We also began making deliveries to the at risk population, seniors and other homebound individuals, some of which are in quarantine.
