The California Association of Food Banks is committed to protecting the health and safety of conference attendees. To enable in-person events to take place with lower risk to participants, CAFB is requiring proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (as defined by the California Department of Public Health) along with photo ID for admittance to the 2022 Food ACCESS Conference. 

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination must be issued by the Department of Health & Human Services, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, or World Health Organization which includes name of person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, and date doses administered.

Options for providing proof of COVID-19 vaccination:

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card 
  • A photo of a vaccination card as a separate document
  • A photo of the attendee’s vaccine card stored on a phone or electronic device
  • Documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider  
  • Digital record that includes a QR code that when scanned by a SMART Health Card reader displays to the reader client name, date of birth, vaccine dates and vaccine type

Our decisions and preventive measures are guided by the requirements and recommendations of the California Department of Public Health, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health authorities.

  • Verification of full COVID-19 vaccination for in-person participation 
  • Enhanced sanitization of meeting and exhibit spaces
  • Masking and social distancing guidance will adhere to California Department of Public Health (CDPH) most current guidance at time of event. 

By registering for and attending the 2022 Food ACCESS Conference, you agree to abide by and engage in conduct that is beneficial to the health and safety of all conference attendees. This includes, but is not limited to, wearing a mask, providing proof of vaccination, practicing appropriate physical distancing, and not attending any events if you are ill or have been recently exposed to COVID-19.
