-The popular San Luis Obispo Popolo Catering has taken all of the necessary steps to ensure safe food service. The catering company has been providing curbside service and meal delivery in response to COVID-19 dining restrictions since March of this year.

“Our commitment to our customers means double-checking all of our food service processes and making sure all of our procedures, kitchen and staff is up to the highest standards,” said co-owner Kat Castillo. “Qualifying for ServSafe certifications mean we have been able to take our entire staff, facility and food preparation and service standards to an even higher level.”

Kitchen staff, food preparation, and all other employees follow the safety and sanitation protocols that have been established by the State of California and the County of San Luis Obispo. In addition, the catering company has achieved ServSafe® certifications for all staff members.

ServeSafe is the food and beverage safety training and certification program that is administered by the United States National Restaurant Association. The program is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Conference for Food Protection (CFP).

Both the State of California and the County of San Luis Obispo require Food Safety Management and Food Handler certifications. The ServSafe certifications meet the highest standards in the industry.
