Safety First: Serving Food and Protecting People During Covid-19

Developed by the Aspen Institute Food and Society Program, World Central Kitchen, Off Their Plate, and the James Beard Foundation, these guidelines address common questions about the virus and offer practical steps that chefs, managers and supervisors can begin taking as they prepare to re-open their kitchens.

The guidelines draw from the expertise of medical experts, public health officials, chefs and restaurant operators with decades of experience in their fields.

Safety First: Serving Food and Protecting People During Covid-19 is the first in a series of resources that will be published in the coming weeks, made possible by the generous support of the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund.
