My name is Carlos Rodriguez I am the coordinator for the Senior Commodities program at East Valley Family Services. With this program we can provide seniors with two bags of groceries per month. I registered for this conference to network and learn about how others are implementing changes to their programs during covid-19. I would like to ask if any organizations were interested in becoming a distribution site for this program. I feel that this would add value to any organization working with low-income people age 60 and over. My goal is to add 20 sites with 50 people each site which would increase our caseload by 1,000 people in need.

I am with The Just One Project. We transitioned our services to contactless by changing our Community Market to a drive-through pantry, our Pop Up & Give Mobile Distributions are also drive through.
