Commonly asked questions
Should we use disposable or paper products?
There is no need to use disposable or paper products - in fact, for meals being delivered away from the main dining area, disposable products notoriously do not hold temperature. Provide tableware as you would normally. Practice cleaning and sanitizing procedures as usual.
I have limited staff available - what are my options?
It is perfectly acceptable to review your menu and make substitutions to ease production in the kitchen. Consider using your emergency menu or a menu with easy-to-prepare items.
What will happen with my food delivery?
You should have a conversation with your food supplies and vendors. During this time with restrictions on outside vendors, it may not be appropriate for the delivery person to walk through the building to make your food delivery. Instead, coordinate with suppliers to use a loading dock or appropriate area where food and supplies can be accessed by facility staff to store appropriately.
