MoGro already takes conservative measures when it comes to food safety practices. We wear gloves at all times to handle items, including pre-packaged items like bread and eggs. Most items are only touched once (with gloves) before being packed away in your bag, which is much less contact than at a grocery store. Bags aren't opened again until they are opened by you.
At your Pickup Location
Here’s where you can help. Please have someone else pick up your order if you aren’t feeling well. Please wash your hands before and after picking up your order, and while you’re picking up, try to refrain from touching people and surfaces as much as possible. On the other hand, please greet people warmly with your voice, as we all need to find ways to spread love and community right now. You will find that your Food Champion will carry themselves in the same way, in addition to wearing gloves for the distribution and wiping down surfaces with sanitizer.
Should I keep doing MoGro?
Deciding what you and your family should do to take precautions for Coronavirus is up to you. Public health officials recommend limiting time in public places, while also acknowledging that people need to take care of basic needs, like food. If MoGro helps you cut back on trips to the grocery store, it might limit time spent in public spaces, or it may not. We support you if you decide you need to put your MoGro participation on hold! If you do, we hope you find other ways to keep eating healthy, which is as important as ever!
At what point would MoGro decide temporarily close?
MoGro will continue as is until directed by authorities to do otherwise, at which point we will fully comply. In addition, if enough of our members stop participating, or if enough of our partner organizations (where you pick up your order) decide to put MoGro on hold, we may be forced to do the same. In any case, we will give as much notice as possible.
