Fireweed Food Hub

COVID-19 Official Policy

Updated on August 5, 2020

 

Fireweed Food Co-op places the safety of staff, board members, vendors and the community with utmost importance and strives to avoid or significantly limit the risk of exposure.


FFC Board of Directors and staff will eliminate or reduce the amount of in-person meetings. If an in-person meeting is required, we will ensure to follow the social distancing and sanitation procedures outlined in our policy. FFC has access to an account for virtual meetings.


All public-facing operations will ensure the safety of the community. At the farmers' market, our staff will enable social distancing with the market space, offer a handwashing/ hand sanitizer station, and regularly disinfect frequently touched surfaces (ex: beer tables). In addition, we ask that all our staff and volunteers wear masks during the market.

 

As for the Food Hub, FFC will work to minimize prolonged contact, implement extra sanitization of frequently touched surfaces (doors, tables, etc.) and will implement contactless packaging, purchasing and delivery options. FFC will limit in-person contact, but where necessary social distancing will be implemented.


FFC will require all vendors/producers/suppliers we work with to read and adhere to this Safety Policy to the best of their abilities.
