Creation and production of meals delivered to those impacted by the virus;
Meals and ingredients ready for take away or delivery;
The new sanitary standards - Hugues Cossard - ServSafe certificate examination and review of the precautions against COVID-19 in the kitchen, meat and fish prep rooms, bakeries and other food manufacturing centers;

What are the management strategies for the future?
Special Donations for a Special Day
And a special thanks to one of our individual members who generously included us in his birthday wish! He asked that instead of gifts, contributions be made to the Comité Tricolore. Not only was his goal met, but his friends responded widely and almost doubled it!
And a Special Thanks!
Thank you to all our followers on Facebook or online who are the backbone of our solidarity efforts for going to our Donate page!
MEET OUR NEW MEMBER:
Alsace Washington DC Association
You can now follow the Facebook page of our newest member, the Alsace Washington DC Association @AlsaceWashingtonDC.
The Alsatian community and friends from Washington have decided to join together to:
Promote Alsace in all its cultural, gastronomic, economic and social activities;
Organize meetings between friends of Alsace;
Serve as a network of mutual help and solidarity. Alsace is renowned for its strong cultural identity, traditions, dialect and... gastronomy!
Alsace is a land of passage marked by geography: the Rhine, an essential economic axis; a fertile plain; vineyards known for its Riesling wine and finally the Vosges. Between 1674 and 1945, Alsace was a disputed area between France and Germany. As the home of a double culture, Alsace became a pioneer region in the construction of the European Union with Strasbourg as the seat of the European Parliament.
Alsace is represented outside the region by nearly 60 associations around the world and federated by the International Union of Alsatians Abroad (UIA). New York, Chicago, Boston, Miami, Montreal, Quebec City already have Alsatian associations.
Until recently Washington DC was a "missing link" in North America. So if you want to join contact firstname.lastname@example.org
