Additional Notes from Houston Food Bank:
All people inside must be fully vaccinated or wear masks. Staff members not wearing masks have been verified to be fully vaccinated and have sticker on their badge ID’s as proof. Volunteers and visitors who show their COVID-19 vaccination card or photo of that card will not be required to wear masks, but everyone will have temperature checks.

Due to limited locker space, we ask that you lock your purse, jackets, backpacks, and any other valuables in your vehicle before checking-in.

Fully Vaccinated definitions: Per the CDC: For the purposes of this guidance, people are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 ≥2 weeks after they have received the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or ≥2 weeks after they have received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson and Johnson [J&J]/Janssen) as demonstrated by possession of a COVID vaccination card or a photo of that card; there is currently no post-vaccination time limit on fully vaccinated status.
