TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—The Salvation Army is making a few provisions in order to keep its clientele and staff safe. The center will now offer a walk up and drive up food pantry. This is a change from their normal come in and and sit process. Hours for the food pantry are also changing.
It will only operate from 9am - 10am and only on Wednesdays and Friday's. People are also restricted from being in the building longer than five minutes.
Lieutenant Rachel Johnson said the Salvation Army is working to continue providing services during this time.
"We know that people have needs in every season of life," said Johnson. "If there's potential outbreak of Coronavirus or not people have needs and life has to continue. There has to be some sense of normalcy in all of this."
The Salvation Army is also making plans to deliver food for those who may not be able to leave their home should things get worse.
