Update from the MI Dept of Agriculture & Rural Development : Operating a Retail Food Business During the COVID-19 Pandemic
In the 2020 Edition of Food Digest put out by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, they addressed the following in regards to Operation a Retail Food Business During the COVID-19 Pandemic:
"The COVID-19 pandemic has created the risk of COVID-19 exposure in food-selling establishments and pharmacies. Preventing the spread of COVID-19 at your retail food establishment is critical to protecting public health. Supermarkets and convenience stores are critical infrastructure and must be up and running for a community to stay healthy and recover.
Although food has not been identified as a likely source of COVID-19 infections, close contact with people/groups (not social distancing) leads to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. COVID-19 can survive on cardboard for up to 24 hours and up to three days on hard surfaces such as plastic and stainless-steel surfaces. Food establishments are a likely point of community contact, so it is vital for you to follow requirements to prevent the spread of the virus in your food establishment. This will protect your frontline workers and your customers.
Due to the emergency conditions that exist in the State of Michigan caused by COVID-19, important safety measures need to be put in place to protect consumers and employees at grocery stores and pharmacies. If you sell food directly to consumers, here are the basic requirements for food establishments to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
Food sellers must also continue doing the following:

1. Choose the Right Leader
Having the right person in charge is essential to your strategy of ongoing recruitment. This person most likely has some of the following traits: positive, upbeat, friendly, organized, and passionate about your organization.
2. Assign tasks
Put together a committee and each member takes a day/sport they are in charge of. You are not alone in this and you shouldn’t try to take on everything by yourself.
3. Focus on Strengths
When filling volunteer roles, take advantage of their strengths. Things like previous retail or sales experience, or even friendliness and personability will help your volunteers feel confident in their position and more likely to continue on. On the other side of that, if there is a lack of confidence, they most likely will not volunteer the next time.
4. Ask those Who Care about the Organization
People who care are more likely to get involved and want to see your organization succeed. This audience can be found by followers of your Facebook page/group or newsletter if you have those in place.
5. Prepare for Common Questions
If you have answers to common questions on your website or under documents in your Facebook group, this can help in their confidence in their role and cut down on errors and issues while they are volunteering.
6. Provide Plenty of Training
We keep mentioning the importance of volunteers having confidence in their roles - well, here we go again. Having clear and concise positions, descriptions and execution guidelines will help volunteers know what they are doing and know how to do it right. Remember, people learn differently, so bonus if you have material to read or a video to watch.
7. Encourage Cheerleaders for your Organization
If you are able to recruit one or more people who can help cheer on volunteering in your organization, this will help create excitement around the position.
8. Value the Relationship First
There are many areas that you are balancing and it’s easy to get “transactional”, but remember to value the relationship you have with each volunteer. When people don’t feel valued, they will be reluctant to volunteer again.
9. Say Thank You
Recognition, whether it is verbal, written or on social media, will help the volunteer feel valued and needed. You can also offer them free soda and popcorn.
