The Food Depot has a long history of serving as a disaster relief organization and has a disaster plan in place. The focus of preparedness has been on wildfires, but The Food Depot is rapidly adapting. Distribution plans for pandemics are new to The Food Depot, but be assured that the organization is continually working to adjust to the changing environment. The food bank is positioned to serve its community and is actively preparing alternative distribution strategies, as well as acquiring food and other resources.
