From Farm to Table – Enjoy Fresh Produce Safely this Summer!

From Farm to Table – Enjoy Fresh Produce Safely this Summer!

The COVID-19 pandemic created unprecedented disruption to Indiana’s local production cycles that bring food, fiber, flowers and more to our restaurants, farmers’ markets and communities. As more people are vaccinated and restrictions are lifted, Purdue Extension offers this advice about how to enjoy fresh produce while maintaining safety for yourself and your community.

Extension specialists advise that you stay knowledgeable and follow the current Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 guidance along with federal, state and local health guidelines. Everyone who is eligible should receive a COVID-19 vaccine, which has been proven safe and effective. Those who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a mask and social distance.
