The East Hampton Food Pantry has adjusted its distribution procedure in light of the coronavirus situation. Only one client at a time will be allowed to enter the Pantigo Road building.
Senior citizens have been asked to arrive at 1 p.m. for pickups. Delivery can be requested for those who cannot leave the house at 631-324-2300. All others will be welcomed after the older clients have been served. The pantry has gone to a twice-monthly schedule; after Tuesday, the next pickup day will be April 7, then April 21, both from 1 to 6 p.m.
The Amagansett pantry at 486 Montauk Highway will suspend operation after Tuesday, and its clients will have to go to the East Hampton location. Vicki Littman, the East Hampton Food Pantry chairwoman, said she anticipated an escalating need and that additional financial contributions were urgently needed.
