We continue to provide food assistance from marugohan market. However, as we wrote in the last report, it is still not safe to allow people to come in and "shop" for what they need. We understand that this aspect of the project was very appealing to our users and we continually are asked, "When are you going to reopen?" As much as we would like reopen and allow people to shop for what they need, we still feel it is not completely safe for our users and volunteers. The space is very small compared to supermarkets that are open.
Begining on October 1st, we will introduce a coupon system that has similar aspects to marugohan. We believe this will make it easier for users to get the food they need without having to deal with multiple checks each time they come. We also see it as a stepping stone to reopening marugohan fully by early 2021.
