First and foremost, we hope that you and your family are safe and healthy. We want to take a moment to thank every member of this community.

In stark contrast with the message of fear coming from most media sources, we see that the community of Los Angeles has come together in an inspirational way.

Our mission remains unchanged - To help people live a vital and abundant life.

We believe it's more important than ever to deliver food that nourishes the whole system and also to continue to support the local economy and people on the front lines.

At MLVK, we have been following the progress of the SARS-COV-2 spread since early January and have implemented many protocols outlined by the CDC and WHO.

All departments have been working around the clock 24/7 as we remain on the forefront of this health crisis.

As a result, we have been a significant contributor to keeping our community fed during this unprecedented time.

The White House released the guidelines this week, making MLVK exempt from any city closure as we are considered a critical infrastructure industry.

In the event the City of Los Angeles et al. mandates a shelter in place policy, MLVK will remain open and operational to distribute our essential goods to the people we serve.

We have taken the following additional steps to ensure the welfare of our employees, customers, and vendors:

  • Daily office deep-cleaning of all common areas and workspaces
  • Placement of hand sanitizers at entry points, exits, and other easily accessible locations
  • Education of all production, warehouse and office staff to remain vigilant with proper hand-washing, avoiding face touching, and other preventative practices both at work and at home
  • Actively monitoring and encouraging sick employees to stay home
  • Prohibiting outside visitors and salespeople from coming to the office unless highly critical
  • Maintaining a 6-foot distance from one another whenever practical and possible
  • We continue to ask every one of you to wash your hands diligently throughout the day, as this is still the single most effective method of containing exposure.
