Estacada Harvest Market has taken steps to support the Estacada Area Food Bank during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Thursday, July 2, the store at 280 Broadway St., began selling cloth face coverings and plans to donate the proceeds to the food bank. The store will likely carry the masks for the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Per guidelines from Gov. Kate Brown, face coverings must be worn in businesses and indoor public spaces to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
The masks are available at Harvest Market's check stands for $15. The product's description says one size will fit most adults.
"The demand at the food bank is up, and every little bit helps," said Dan Backwell, manager of Estacada Harvest Market. "Our friends and neighbors are using the food bank's services."
The Estacada Area Food Bank, 272 Broadway St., is open to customers every Wednesday and Friday, along with the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. For more information, visit estacadafoodbank.org.
