Is takeout food safe?

The short answer is YES, it's perfectly safe. And it's helping to keep our restaurants in business! With a few common-sense precautions like washing your hands before you eat, and making sure you store the food safely, it's a great way to find variety in your meal plan.

Check out NC State's information regarding takeout food and COVID-19. 

Check out these apps for your phone that help you order and pay for takeout or deliver!

5 tips shared in the video:

1.     Lower the bar on healthy eating expectations. We all have heightened stress and feel like things are out of control. Comfort foods can be helpful in creating a sense of normalcy.
2.     Be mindful about hunger cues and emotions. What you eat is less important.
3.     Keep to a routine. Including meal and snack times.
4.     Have a fruit bowl out in your kitchen.
5.     There’s nothing wrong with coffee!
