HEART OF THE TABLE
COVID-19 STATEMENT, PLAN & POLICY
In early March 2020 our management team began closely monitoring the Coronavirus Pandemic also known as COVID-19 and preparing for the negative impact on the food service industry. We continue to reinforce and implement precautionary measures across our cooking, serving and packaging for carryout of all pop-ups, affiliate locations and tours, including frequent and thorough handwashing and sanitizing as well as closely monitoring the health of our team members.
We are closely monitoring the CDC for updates and are in frequent contact with the State of California and able to quickly institute any additional health and safety processes and procedures that may be needed. This may be a difficult time for many, but we want to reassure you that we're always putting your health, safety and well-being first.
Thank you for being a Heart of the Table customer. Please reach out to us should you have any additional questions or concerns. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our employees, partners and customers. Our business is open and we have prepared an operational plan to ensure we can maintain our service level, while ensuring the health and safety of all that interact with our business.
