The schedule of sales for the third quarter of 2021* (July-September) is below. The schedule will be released quarterly, and is subject to change. Thank you for understanding.
** Important Health and Safety UPDATE **
With the recent upswing of COVID cases, we are taking precautionary steps to keep our team & customers safe. We will do everything we can to continue safely supporting every community we serve.
Per the CDC on 8/2/21, FFA is now asking customers & any children, volunteers, and staff wear masks while indoors— even if you’re fully vaccinated. Our sales are located in counties with “substantial” or “high” current rates of transmission of COVID-19. We are still in this together, and if we respect this safety measure, the more we can protect each other and come out on the other side of this infectious spike sooner. Find MDH’s updated masking recommendations here, and CDC’s COVID-19 transmission tracker here.
Since the on-set of the pandemic we’ve continued assessing and adapting food distributions in the safest ways possible. As we prepare for the busy holiday season and winter, sales will steadily move back indoors, and will adhere to necessary safety adaptations to make that possible & less risky for all. Our safety precautions include:
1. Requiring masks indoors (even if you’re fully vaccinated)
2. Continuing the practice of social distancing when indoors through spaced-out lines & one-way flow of foot traffic
3. Displaying menus on stanchions throughout the line (no display table)
4. Limiting the line flow to allow only one customer at the register at any one time, and encouraging one shopper per household
We will be at sale locations either monthly or every other month. As we continue to ramp up sales and adapt during the pandemic, we will communicate plans as they form.
Thank you for your flexibility as we navigate these unpredictable times. Providing food to the community in the safest way possible is, and will continue to be, our top priority.
*Sales are subject to change last minute. Please check in with us regularly.
**Everyone is welcome to participate, even if you’re not in a vehicle! We remain open to ALL people with all modes of transportation. As long as you come prepared to transport your food, we’re ready to accommodate.
