Precautionary Measures re COVID-19

Updated Tuesday, July 21st, 2020

Given recent events, we want to assure our customers that their health, as well as the health of our employees is our top priority. Strict sanitation procedures regarding food preparation and handling are always of paramount importance at F+B Kosher The following safety protocols have been implemented for our kitchen and home delivery operations to safeguard the health and well-being of our community:

  • Staff will enter through the back door of the synagogue and will call the mashgiach in advance to open the door; touch points will be sanitized after entry/exit;
  • Staff will only be present in the kitchen during food production, and will not walk around the building;
  • The office will remain closed and there will be no on-site meetings with clients until further notice;
  • Enhanced sanitation procedures, including deep cleaning in all high traffic areas and common areas;
  • All employees strictly adhere to government-recommended sanitation and social distancing protocols;
  • All kitchen staff are required to wear single use gloves and masks while handling food;
