Courtesy of First 5 of San Benito County Executive Director Lisa Faulkner:
As our community continues to respond to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), I wanted to personally reach out to you and inform you of the Food Distribution program to be held at the Family Impact Center located at 351 Tres Pinos Road, in Hollister. Our partners will be distributing food boxes that have up to four days’ worth of food, every Friday by reservation. As we distribute food supplies, we will implement the social distancing guidelines.
To make your reservation please email [email protected] text 831-427-7957 with your First & Last name, family size, children’s ages, car information(make/model/license plate number/color) Please see the postcard for more information. Please see the attachment to be used to convey the important follow up details.
This program is made possible through partnerships with the Community Food Bank of San Benito County, First 5 San Benito, United Way of San Benito County, GoKids Inc and The Family Impact Center Collaborative. We are dedicated to remaining connected to our families and early childhood education partners and we know that when we are informed it helps to reduce our anxiety and feelings of isolation. We will continue to monitor the progression of the pandemic and to follow the health recommendations of our public health department and government officials.
Remember that fear, anger, stress and panic all suppress the autoimmune system! Do the things that strengthen and support your autoimmune system: Get enough sleep, eat well, play, meditate, and put in to practice what keeps you in a state of general well-being.
All of us are happy to make ourselves available to all of you via phone or text. First 5 San Benito has embraced a flexible workplace and culture, and we are well prepared to serve you virtually. We will remain safe, positive, and purposeful. As we continue to monitor the situation, you can be assured our dedication to our clients and our communities remains unaffected. Thank you for your trust in us, and I wish all the best for the health of you and those you care about.
