Newmarket’s food bank will be temporarily serving its clients by delivering food as of April 1 as an additional COVID-19 precaution.

The Newmarket Food Panty will be closing its doors to clients for the month of April, said executive director Judy Poulin, and instead will be preparing food hampers for direct deliveries.

To receive a food hamper, clients must call 905-895-6823, ext. 120 to book a delivery day for April.

Clients will be required to be at home between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to accept the delivery, and will receive a call from the driver beforehand.
