COVID-19 Safety Precautions for Fulfill Employees and Volunteers

Fulfill, formerly The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, is essential according to the Governor’s Executive Order. As such, Fulfill must stay open and operating to feed our neighbors in need. To that end, the safety of staff and our volunteers is vital to our mission. So, until the crisis is over:

  • All staff, to the extent possible, will be working to build the crisis boxes or working from home as approved.
  • All employees and volunteers are screened for exposure to the virus as they enter the building; this includes a volunteer survey relating to potential exposure and the taking of temperatures. We have hired a registered nurse to take non-contact temperatures for all those who come in the building and to enforce proper safety precautions. Please be patient if there is a line.
  • If you are sick, or come into contact with anyone who is sick, or who has been out of the country, please stay home and take care of yourself. Employees are reminded to call in to let HR know, and we will follow internal protocol. No one – no one – who has not been screened, unless it’s an agency pickup, will be permitted in the building for ANY reason.
  • All personnel in the building are responsible for making sure everyone in the building maintains social distancing. If you see something, say something – it’s your obligation.
  • Gloves are mandatory and provided. Washing hands is mandatory. Face shields and masks will be available to those who’d like them.
  • The area where crisis relief boxes are made is wiped down/sanitized every hour. Extra cleaning personnel have been hired to wipe down other common areas.
  • The agency warehouse door will be open to ONE person at a time to allow for safe delivery/pick up of food. No one will be allowed to gather at the agency door. Everyone has an obligation to call out ANY violation of this standard.
  • Our neighbors in need will be able to pick up crisis boxes on their own under the tent outside the building. If anyone needs more help, we will go outside to speak to them at a safe distance.
