How does the Coronavirus pandemic affect the food we order from Home Chef?

Food safety is core to everything we do, so we are confident in our ability to keep our customers safe. We have rigorous supplier approval and quality assurance programs to ensure ingredient quality and safety. Additionally, we work with some of the most reputable food suppliers in the country and often source locally.

The CDC has stated there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food and that coronaviruses are unlikely to survive on the surfaces of food products or packaging (see the FAQ "Can the virus that causes COVID-19 be spread through food, including refrigerated or frozen food?").  In general, because of poor survivability of coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely a very low risk of spread from food products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days at ambient, refrigerated, or frozen temperatures (how Home Chef meals are shipped). This statement has also been supported by the FDA (see section headed "Food").
