CAG News and Events
Updated Food Pantry and Thrift Shop Operations
Beginning June 2, 2020 -
All thrift store customers and food pantry clients MUST wear a mask at all times. You will not be admitted into the building if you do not have a mask or a face cover. You must sanitize your hands upon entering the building.
NO PETS WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE FOOD PANTRY OR THE THRIFT SHOP.
Please plan accordingly.
Food Pantry –
As we transition back to a self-select pantry, there will be some modification to our policy and procedures. Curb side pick up will continue to be an option for those who would prefer not to enter the building.
We will continue to check all clients in at the outside office window. Our goal is to have each person through the pantry in 10 minutes.
Only 1 client will be allowed in the pantry at any time.
Only 2 clients will be waiting in the lobby at any time.
All other clients will need to wait outside. There are social distancing markers in front of the building.
**Since we are only allowing 1 client at a time into the food pantry, family members will not be allowed to shop with you. This includes children. Please plan accordingly. **
Overstock pantry visits will continue to be pre-boxed with additional perishable items. Overstock will continue to be pick up from the outside tables.
Thrift Shop –
WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING DONATION AT THIS TIME. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE DONATIONS ON OUR PORCH.
As we reopen our thrift shop, we will need to put in place safety precautions.
There will only have 4 customers in the shop. This will be monitored by a volunteer at the door.
We will have an outlined path throughout the shop, and 6ft spacing floor stickers.
Thank you, CAG volunteers and staff.
Coming soon: New Sign!
Thanks to the wonderful generosity of our donors, CAG has been able to purchase a sign. This is our first ever sign, and it's important to our mission now because so many people are newly food insecure and might be looking for assistance. This advertises our presence in Golden and allows us to help more community members.
Coming soon: New Awning!
We will soon have a badly needed awning in our parking lot. This will prevent ice build up and help us serve our clients more comfortably (and with better food safety) in the sumer.
