Hi everyone,

 

You will have heard the NSW Premier Berejiklian announce Sunday 22nd March, 2020 that the state government will enforce a lockdown of non-essential services.  A number of essential services will continue to operate, including:

  • Food stores and supermarkets

  • Pharmacies and medical centres

  • Petrol Stations

  • Convenience stores

  • Banks

  • Logistics services

  • Food delivery services, including Box Divvy.

In other words: business as normal – whatever ‘normal’ is these days!
 
What else are we doing to maintain food security?

  • This week, all our Hubs will have devised a Plan B so that every Hubster has a back-up location and packer, in case a Hubster requires self-isolation.

  • All our staff in the packing shed, as well as drivers, have already undergone the Health Department’s Covid-19 Infection Control Training.  We have also asked all Hubsters to go through this module by this Tuesday 24th March.

  • We have also instituted hygiene and packing protocols with our Hubsters.This includes hand-washing and the washing-down of packing surfaces with soap/water and sanitiser before and after packing.

  • Social Distancing - Your Hubster will leave your order out, whilst some will ask you to text them on arrival. 

How can you help?

  • Please make sure that your bags are clean before drop off – both the interior and handles.

  • Practice social distancing when you pick-up viz-a-viz your Hubster and other members.

  • For home delivery (if available): your Hubster will leave your order in a shady spot, and will text you when delivered.

Security of supply
Supply for most lines has now recovered. 
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to your Hubster. 
 
Cheers,
