1. Phase one: continue online cooking classes
2. Phase two: Allow 50% of normal class numbers with demo classes only to insure spacing between chairs, minimal movement, and contact between volunteers and participants.
3. Phase three: Operate at 50% – 75% capacity for classes with hands on and demo classes. Spreading out tables to keep participants 6 feet apart for cooking activities and eating.
4. Phase four: Reopen at full capacity with maintaining spacing and ample area to spread out for participants.
Cleaning and disinfecting at Healthy Eats has always been a top priority. All cleaning procedures are within the guidelines and expectations of the Health Department. All volunteers and hands on cooking by the participants and instructors require the use of hand washing and using gloves throughout the cooking and serving process. Three hand-washing sinks are available at all times and different sizes of disposable gloves. Each participant, whether cooking or just watching, will be required to wash hands upon first entering the classroom. Hand sanitizer will be available around the kitchen and eating areas. Disposable forks and spoons, plates, napkins, and cups will be used for each of the phases. Two bathrooms are available and have disposable paper towels and soap. All surfaces are sanitized with bleach or other disinfectant solutions before and after class and in between some cooking processes if needed. All volunteers have up to date food handler permits and have been educated on kitchen safety and additional procedures during this time.
