MEDFORD, Ore--- The Compassion Highway Project is continuing to serve meals and supplies to the public, but changing the process it uses to do so.
Compassion Highway Project is a community-based organization in Medford that is used to help feed people in need.
Today, the project made some changes to how meals are distributed. This is an effort to practice safe social distancing.
Rather than having tables set up with a line, the volunteer set up stations that were spaced out in the parking lot. Meals were also pre-prepared instead of made on-site.
“It’s hard, we’re trying to take precautions, making sure we’re safe too, but making sure that people are taken care of.” said Founder and Executive Director Melissa Mayne.
Volunteers also encouraged folks to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer. Volunteers were also wearing gloves and maintaining social distancing.
Normally the project serves around 300 people on Sundays, but some of their services have been limited due to the coronavirus concerns.
The project is also working to educate people on the coronavirus and advising preventative measures to help keep them safe.
The project says it still needs food donations and other hygiene supplies.
