CORONAVIRUS & SAFETY PRECAUTIONS:
Bristol Mobile Food Market
Student and Family Engagement at Bristol, in partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank, invite you to participate in the Bristol Mobile Food Market. The market provides a variety of free fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy items to Bristol students, faculty, and staff.
Members of the Mobile Food Market team will be adhering to all COVID-19 safety guidelines as provided by the Massachusetts Department of Health and the Greater Boston Food Bank to ensure that social distancing guidelines are followed and the distribution will be safe for both the volunteers and guests.
The next Bristol Mobile Food Market will take place on Thursday, October 8, 2020, from noon to 2 p.m. at the Fall River location on Elsbree Street. We've extended distribution to the Attleboro, Taunton and New Bedford locations. When you register, please select which location you plan to attend.
If you wish to participate in the October 8 market, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
Due to the high number of participants we expect, PRE-REGISTRATION WILL BE REQUIRED for this distribution. We have limited the distribution to the first 450 individuals who register. We are limiting the distribution to two (2) pre-registered participants per car.
We will be conducting the distribution as a “drive-thru,” meaning that you will be able to receive food from the program in a no-contact setting. We have established these safety protocols to keep both the volunteers and the guests safe.
Please be sure to clear the trunk of your vehicle – pre-bagged groceries will be loaded into your vehicle by volunteers.
The market will be held, rain or shine, under the Solar Canopy at the Fall River Campus (parking lot 10). Guests will enter into parking lot 5 to line up, and checked in before entering lot 6 to proceed to the distribution area by providing the email registration confirmation that will be sent to each individual that completes the registration form. This email will contain directions and information you will need to check in. If you do not have a printer, you can write the information on a piece of paper (please print clearly).
IMPORTANT CHANGE IN FALL RIVER PICKUP:
Fall River Location Only-- When you receive your email confirmation, there will be a pickup time listed. Please plan to come to the Fall River Campus at this time to receive your groceries. We've implemented this change from last month to reduce the amount of traffic on Elsbree Street and on campus.
Your pick up time is determined by when you register. First registered, first served.
**If you have a conflict with your scheduled pickup time, please email email@example.com with the word "CONFLICT" in the subject line.
If you selected Attleboro, New Bedford or Taunton, pickup process has not changed from last month's distribution.
