The SLO Food Bank is in need of volunteers to help keep people fed during the pandemic.

The food bank usually has about 3,000 volunteers throughout the year, but that number has lessened due to COVID-19 concerns.

The food bank has developed new safety measures that include wearing a mask and gloves, washing hands and getting temperature checks before helping out.

“Not surprisingly, during this time with a lot of people being in between work or even out of work due to the economic downfall from COVID, we've seen a dramatic expansion at all of our distribution sites,” said Tim Parker, director of operations at the SLO Food Bank.
