Heart of the Hamptons continues to monitor the development of COVID-19 and is making adjustments as necessary. We are doing the best we can to support community members now and in the future!
HOW HEART OF THE HAMPTONS IS RESPONDING:
Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, we have implemented an emergency response plan to ensure the safety and health of our staff, volunteers, and customers. We continue to receive weekly food deliveries from our partners/distributors: Astor Distribution, HAPCO Farms, and Long Island Cares. Starting March 25th, we limited our distribution to Wednesdays only, from 10AM-12PM. Select employees and volunteers have come on the off days to pre-pack grocery bags filled with double the quantity of food that customers would normally receive. We distribute three grocery bags to each family and provide an extra bag to families with more than three people. We transport the pre-packed grocery bags upstairs to tables set up outside. To limit exposure, we have started a drive-thru service. As customers arrive, they remain in their cars and we bring the grocery bags to them.
