ACTION PLAN + FOOD SAFETY

What Green Wagon Farm is Doing in Response to COVID-19

To continue to serve our community, especially the vulnerable and those taking extra precautions, we are offering bulk ordering with both pickup and home delivery options, as well as implementing changes to our CSA distribution. These services will be offered until the current situation is fully resolved and we feel confident the safety of our customers is no longer at risk. Please find all updates regarding these changes in the respective sections of this menu.

This is a situation that we are monitoring closely, both to ensure that we are taking the appropriate steps to protect the health of our customers and employees, and to assess potential impacts on our business. As concern around the coronavirus grows, we want to let you know what we are doing to make the health of our customers and employees a priority.

With the COVID-19 outbreak, we are continuing to follow our normal operating procedures including using a food contact surface sanitizer, normal hand washing procedures, sanitizing salad mixes, and sanitizing produce bins that leave the farm. Our health policy remains that if anyone is sick, they will stay home. The following are specific cleaning and sanitizing steps implemented in response to the outbreak:
-
  • Employee hand washing upon arrival and between tasks
  • Sanitize surfaces daily such as doors, light switches, doorknobs, computers, desks.
  • Wash and sanitize all greens 
  • Sanitize all produce totes and bins

It is important to note that there is no data to show that COVID-19 is spread by consuming food. The risk of getting the virus from your food is currently considered low. How COVID-19 Spreads-CDC.gov

As this is an evolving situation, we will be considering changes in our operating procedures that might be required in the future if the spread of the coronavirus continues to threaten the health of our customers and our employees. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns, and feedback. We thank you for your ongoing support!
