We know many families will need access to meals when schools close Monday. Communities will be able to offer meals to children age 1-18 during emergency school closures, in low-income areas. The Oregon Department of Education has requested a USDA waiver to give extra flexibility in where and how these meals are served. They will let schools know their options, schools are working hard on planning, and we will share more with you as it’s available. Contact your school or call 211 to stay up to date.
SNAP and WIC continue to be important resources, especially for stocking up on food.  If you’re impacted by Coronavirus, and considered an ABAWD, you may be able to waive the “time limit” on SNAP–contact your local DHS office, to talk to a worker about this. Federal lawmakers are working as we speak on policies to make sure these programs respond to the pandemic–we’ll add updates to our website.
You can now use EBT to order food online through Amazon and Walmart for home delivery in Oregon. Please note that there are delivery fees (which SNAP benefits cannot pay for).
Here is a guide for College Supporting Students During COVID-19 that contains tips that can help administrations support students as they are working on managing the COVID-19 situation.
Oregon Food Bank will be keeping their Find Food page updated as pantries’ emergency hours and operations change. Keep checking the page for up-to-date information about the closest food pantry in your area.
Meals on Wheels People is adjusting the way they serve meals, to protect vulnerable people’s health. For up-to-date information on what is happening check their website or call their COVID-19 Hotline at 503.953.8158.
Call 211 to find services in your community and have your questions answered about Coronavirus.
