Inclement Weather and Agency Closure Policy:
Occasionally, treacherous weather conditions make it unsafe for the St. Louis Area Foodbank to deliver product and/or be open for pick up. In instances such as this, agencies are required to adhere to the following procedures:
- The St. Louis Area Foodbank will announce its closure and/or inability to deliver on the Agency Access page of the website and through various social media outlets. Please refer to these as your primary sources of information for this matter.
- If your agency is scheduled for delivery but is closed due to weather, or unable to be accessed safely, it is your responsibility to notify Dave Froeckmann in Transportation at 314-292-5765 firstname.lastname@example.org . Agencies must email or leave a voicemail the night prior to the delivery.
- If you are scheduled to receive a delivery during wintry weather, it is your responsibility to clear walkways, driveways and make room for a pallet jack to safely operate.
In addition to severe weather, agencies must observe a similar policy upon being closed for the holidays or unexpected occurrences:
- If your agency is scheduled for delivery but is closed for a holiday, or unable to be accessed safely, it is your responsibility to notify Dave Froeckmann in Transportation at 314-292-5765 or email@example.com. Agencies must email or leave a voicemail the night prior to the delivery.
- If your agency is participating in the retail pick up program, it is your responsibility to inform your store contact, as well as Shannon O’Connor (314.227.3738 or firstname.lastname@example.org) of any extended closures that will prevent your organization from picking up at your regularly scheduled retail location.
