Covid Safety: Growing Chefs! Ontario is in regular contact with the Middlesex London Health Unit to ensure we are following strict guidelines. Throughout the pandemic we have always gone above what was required by public health measures. We are following guidelines for cooking and food skills programs set-out by Public Health. Participants are required to wear a reusable or single-use medical mask unless eating, or maintaining a distance of at least 2 metres when outdoors. Surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized regularly, and in between each activity, and when participants leave an area.
Food Allergies: If food allergies are a concern, rest assured that our team is highly experienced in managing dietary restrictions. Do not let a dietary concern prevent your child from participating in our programming. Get in contact with our staff team and we’ll do our best to make appropriate accommodations.
Cancelations: Once full payment is received and registration is confirmed, any cancellation must be directly communicated to Growing Chefs! Staff as early as possible. Cancellations made once the program has started will be eligible for refunds on a case by case basis.
