In continued precautions against the spread of COVID-19, as well as food and general safety, Project Angel Food is continually reviewing and updating our guidelines. The following safety guidelines/requirements are in place at this time:

* All volunteers must provide proof of vaccination, including booster. Booster is required based on eligibility (6-8 months after last vaccination; 3 months after positive test result) or proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours.
* Masks must be worn in the building. The masks must be KN/N-95 or surgical disposables. This is also a requirement for delivering meals and special event volunteering.
* Regular/weekly COVID testing is encouraged. Information about several options can be provided.
* All volunteers must be scheduled. No walk-ins or unscheduled family/friends are permitted.
* Minimum age for volunteers in the kitchen is 14 years old. Anyone 14 or 15 years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
