Our Response to COVID 19

We know many lives have been impacted financially by COVID-19. We are here to help. The Walworth County Food and Diaper Bank has modified the process for distribution of food, diapers, incontinence supplies and period supplies to serve you as safely and easily as possible. You only need to bring a photo ID and a legal piece of mail to show you live in Walworth County. Our Drive-Thru format allows for you to come into our vestibule (out of the weather) and show your photo ID in confidence to a trained staff member on the other side of a glass door. We record your name and address and phone number in the event we may need to reach you in the future. You will also need to let us know if you need diapers, incontinence or period supplies packed in with your order. You will receive a number to place on your dashboard so that we can pack your order and have it ready for our volunteers to load into the trunk of your car. When you exit, a volunteer will direct to go to the back of our building to pick up your groceries. We are currently operating in an emergency mode, serving more people than we ever have in the past with limited resources. All guests receive frozen foods, dairy, canned goods, dry goods and a bag of fresh produce, enough to help you thru 10-14 days of meals. Guests are welcome to come back for food every 30 days. In emergency situations, we will consider all requests. We are currently open for food distribution every Friday 1-4 pm and Saturday 9-11 am to help those who are not able to come during the week. In the event we are required to close completely or change our hours, notice will also be posted on Google, WTMJ, Facebook, Dial 211 and on our website at walworthcountyfoodpantry.org. For those who are unable to leave their homes, please send a written note with a friend or relative who will serve as your proxy to pick up food.

Explaining COVID 19 to Children

Some of you have asked about strategies to talk to your children about what is happening. While this must be tailored to each child and family, the social workers and psychologists have sent me these resources. Take a look and see if it is right for your child/family.
