Planning In Covid-19

We’re still here to help you celebrate! Our clients are sticking with us. Whether your event is postponed until next month or next year, your Chowgirls Event Specialist is prepared to work with you to create a plan that works for you and allows flexibility to ease your mind during this difficult time. Our communication will not be interrupted as you continue to use this time to plan your event.

Thank you for your trust in, and support of Chowgirls. We’re currently unable to provide full-service staffed events to our customers. We feel strongly that the health and safety of our community takes priority above all else. As state social distancing and crowd control guidelines evolve, we are committed to working only within the governor’s mandates at all times. However, we’re launching some great new ways to help you celebrate with your shelter-in-place families and other small groups. We encourage our current and future clients to stay in communication with us. Again, we are so grateful for you and your support. We look forward to working with you as our community navigates this together.

Wishing you good health and safety.

We have implemented strict safety protocols both inside our building and when we’re outside it, delivering food or serving our community. We are also adhering to the State of Minnesota Stay Safe Plan guidelines for guest counts in social event settings.

We will work carefully with each client to determine whether the necessary precautions are in place for events in private homes when over 10 guests indoors, and 25 guests outdoors as per the Stay Safe MN Guidance for Providing Food and Beverages for Onsite Consumption at Indoor and Outdoor Gatherings, published June 12, 2020 as part of Phase III.

We understand that the above document now lists options for venues to host at 25%-50% capacity (up to 250 guests). However, we’re making an intentional decision to pause on catering large gatherings, setting up delivered buffets, and attending events with service staff until we can fully assess the responsibility involved in serving gathered groups amidst COVID-19. These decisions are made based on counsel from our lawyers, doctors, and the governor’s office, and were not made quickly nor taken lightly.

We are offering a wide range of contactless delivery or pick up catering at this time. Please inquire to learn more!

Ever the optimists, we are happy to start conversations about meetings and celebrations, large or small, taking place later this year, into 2021, and beyond. We know clients are taking a second look at their events right now, and we want you to have confidence when planning. We know it’s an uncertain time. We’re making sure you feel comfortable booking events by offering flexible booking. If you book an event that needs to later be canceled or moved, we will transfer your payment to another date without penalty. We are now offering contactless take-home tastings once per month. In doing so we proceed with an abundance of caution for our staff, our clients, and the work we are doing with Minnesota Central Kitchen while continuing to offer opportunities to stay connected with you through our food!

When rescheduling due to COVID-19, Chowgirls will transfer your deposit to another event date for you. Normally and contractually, all deposits are non-refundable or transferable. However, we understand that these are special times and would like to do our part as we get through these unknowns together.

While we’re currently unable to provide full-service staffed events to our customers, Chowgirls is proud to announce that in response to the Coronavirus outbreak, we’re helping to safely prepare and distribute meals to our neighbors in need. We’ve partnered with Second Harvest Heartland and Loaves & Fishes to create Minnesota Central Kitchen, providing kitchen space, staff, supplies, and expertise to prepare and package individual and family-style meals for our food-insecure neighbors and their families. It’s a silver lining for us to be able to repurpose our facility and staff in a way that contributes to the community, and it will help us keep the lights on at Chowgirls during this unpredictable time. Please consider a donation in Chowgirls name to Minnesota’s Central Kitchen during this period of increased need.
