Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
This fluid situation and our understanding of this virus and its impact changes daily. Crossroads Community Services is actively monitoring the circumstances and recommendations from Center for Disease Control, Feeding America, Texas Department of State Health Services and Dallas County Health and Human Services. These recommendations guide our approach, and we will continue to share updates and information as we have it, in an effort to protect your safety and our continued service to low-income families and individuals.
Our pantry hours have been modified in response to COVID-19. Our new hours are Monday – Thursday, 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM.
Crossroads continues to serve clients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our pantry continues to operate as a drive through pantry and distribute to our partner organizations. To comply with new state mandated orders, all staff and volunteers wear a mask or face covering while working in our facility and during all food distribution.
The demand for food remains at a historical high for Crossroads. In the graph below shows how COVID-19 has impacted our food distribution in 2020 compared to 2019.
Our priority remains—feed every family and individual who comes for groceries—however many—meet the need.
We serve people in Dallas, Ellis and Navarro Counties—seniors, those abruptly unemployed, children whose free breakfast and lunch are no more, people who never imagined they would visit a food pantry. This is not the time for anyone to undernourished, because that can reduce their resistance to COVID-19.
