Our Response to COVID-19

Measures undertaken by Food Fare in response to COVID-19

In 5 stores, Food Fares is taking extraordinary measures to do its part to contain the spread of COVID-19 and meet the unprecedented consumer demand on its stores.


  • We’re increasing our already high standards on food safety, sanitation and cleanliness
  • We’re encouraging our team member to wash their hands regularly and frequently disinfecting high-touch surfaces
  • We’re encouraging social distancing in all of our stores with decals separated by two metres
  • We’re limiting the number of customers in our stores at peak times to ensure adequate social distance between them
  • We’re installing Plexiglas shields and at checkouts as quickly as we can
  • We’ve introduced a shopping hour for seniors and those most at risk from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. in all stores
  • We’ve changed our store hours to 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. to reduce contact, give our team members much-needed rest, and give our teams a chance to restock the shelves


  • We are not experiencing a widespread shortage of food
  • We are asking our customers to maintain their normal shopping habits and buy only what they need
  • Panic buying makes it challenging to get products from our suppliers to our warehouses to our stores fast enough
  • We are enforcing limits on high-demand items
