We have been monitoring updates from local and state health departments regarding COVID-19. Given the high volume of customers we serve at senior centers, senior living facilities, and health clinics and in consultation with medical professionals closely tied to our work, we have decided to temporarily ground both Farm Express buses. We know this is not ideal or convenient for community members who rely on our service for healthy, affordable fruits and vegetables.
We appreciate your patience during this temporary hiatus while we await clear, evidence-based guidelines and protocols for how to continue our service safely in the community. This is not a decision we came to lightly and if there is an opportunity for us to provide a modified service to our community members in the near future, you will be the first to know. The Farm Express team is regularly monitoring updates from CDC and state and local health authorities.
Whether you have been a Farm Express partner for a few months or a few years, know that we are tremendously grateful for you. We look forwarding to getting back to the community as soon as possible.
