As we continue to monitor the ever-changing coronavirus situation, we are committed to taking the steps necessary in preserving our local food system while keeping our community healthy. Today I'd like to inform you on the steps we are taking to help support our farmers while maintaining the safety of you and your food.
When reading about events being canceled, now with a statewide ban on large gatherings, it is important not to panic. All sectors of our local economy need to be sustained in this time of uncertainty.
Local business owners walk a thin line to support their livelihoods and rely on their community to support them. Our farmers need customers, restaurants need patrons, stores need shoppers and we all need to ensure their survival.
All of this has weighed on me, but nothing has made me more sure of what NM Harvest was created to do. The CSA model allows you the community to support farmers and producers from the comfort of your home. . Now in the face of the unknown, more than ever, our farmers need us fully behind them.
New Mexico Harvest is investing in your safety.
- Updated delivery procedure: All delivery drivers will wear disposable gloves and masks to reduce the chance of spreading the virus.
- We strongly encourage transitioning to home delivery if you have not done so. Food will be left on your porch or specified location and you are notified once the delivery has been made.
- In contradiction to our zero plastic vision, our farmers will be incorporating additional packaging to ensure your food is safe. Although we are still dedicated to moving towards a zero plastic model, we feel it is an necessity during this time.
- All returned bags will receive additional sanitizing, we are also being mindful of too harsh a chemical effecting our delicious food.
Notification of Suspected Exposure:
This is paramount and the responsibility of everyone in our community. The producers and handlers of your food understand the profound responsibility of keeping your food safe. Luckily most live in rural areas with limited exposure. If anyone in our community suspects exposure, we need to be informed to ensure the safety of our staff and fellow members.
All our best vibes and appreciation
Your Harvest Team and our local partners
