For the past several weeks we have been monitoring the global crisis with the Coronavirus and preparing for these days. During these weeks, I have continually told our team that the time is coming when we will go through this period of social distancing – and perhaps have to suspend church services. That time has now come. 

We are aware of the awesome responsibility Atlantic Natural Foods has to provide traditional food to the Adventist community and now it’s even more important than ever to work closely with AFDA distributors, ABC Stores, local congregations, and individual members.
