SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Sylacauga Care House has released its food distribution procedures for the forseeable future.

The Sylacauga Care House is a non-profit organization that helps low-income families in Sylacauga with food and clothes. It is funded by local churches and individuals.

In a statement the Care House said, “As we join others in our city, state, and country in an attempt to control the spread of the Coronavirus, the Sylacauga Care House announces the following procedures that will be used to serve our clients. Hopefully, this will be a temporary situation, but it will be re-evaluated periodically. The Care House Staff apologizes in advance for any convenience to our clients, but we feel the need to make these changes immediately to protect our staff and our clients.”

Here are the changes for the Care House:

1. No clients will be allowed inside the Care House building for the foreseeable future.

2. No clothing will be issued or received during the next several weeks except in an extreme emergency.

3. All clients must contact our office (256-249-8289) by phone to make an appointment for a food pick-up.

4. Our regular clients will be served on their usual schedules of once every four months and no earlier.

5. Our staff members will give a window of time for you to come, but you may still have to wait awhile to get your food. You will only be served during your assigned time slot. Do not come early. Do not block the driveway.

6. People who do not call in advance will be put on a waiting list.

7. Food will be distributed through either the front door or the side door.
