COVID-19 Response and Preparedness
Delivering on safety
March 16, 2020 - Our hearts go out to all those who have already been affected by the coronavirus. In the face of this unprecedented pandemic, we want to assure you that the health and safety of our customers, vendors, partners, employees and their families is our #1 priority. AZ Fit Kitchen (AFK) has been actively monitoring the situation over the past several weeks as awareness has heightened.
Due to the nationwide public concern over COVID-19, AFK would like to inform our loyal customers that our standard procedure, since we have opened, is to treat our food surfaces and equipment with industrial strength, food safe sanitizer. Our kitchen staff has always followed handwashing protocols set forth by Pima County Health Department, and we are further following all protocols recommended by the CDC. We’ve since implemented an even more rigorous hand washing policy, as well as installed individual hand sanitizer stations for our crew members.
We are also taking proactive steps to make our prep as safe as possible. It’s important to note the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have no reports of human illnesses that suggest COVID-19 can be transmitted by food or food packaging, but we remain vigilant in working with delivery drivers and crew members to ensure efficacy and safety remain the top priority.
Safely Delivering Your Meals
If you are choosing to stay home during this time, we’d like to help with our newly expanded delivery areas surrounding Tucson.
We’ve also adopted a No Contact Policy with our vendors and delivery drivers. Our drivers will leave your meals outside your door and send a text confirming your delivery allowing you to get your food after he/she has left.
For orders picked up at either location, we offer the option of Curbside Delivery to you in your vehicle. You can now stay in your car, call the store to let us know you are waiting outside, and our team will bring your food to you.
East Side - Tanque Verde: 520-298-8404

Whether you are picking up or being delivered to, we are committed to making AZ Fit Kitchen one of the safest ways to stock up and provide your family with healthy meals.
Providing healthy food has always been critical to our mission, and it's now more important than ever.
