Cape Cod Children's Museum Issues Statement Regarding Food Services

"Museum cannot assume the multiple liabilities associated with operating a food service"

Statement issued this morning by the Board of Directors of the Cape Cod Children's Museum, published verbatim:

"Cape Cod Children’s Museum Board of Directors is conducting a self-audit of its current leases, permits, licenses and potential liabilities. During this audit the Board became aware that the Museum is carrying a food service permit. We have elected not to continue with this permit in 2020.

The delivery of food services has become increasingly complex over the past years with continued changes to health regulations and requirements. Cape Cod Children’s Museum does not, nor has plans to, operate a food services kitchen in our building to provide food services to the patrons of the Museum. The Museum’s Board has determined that the Museum cannot assume the multiple liabilities associated with operating a food service, nor is it fiscally responsible for us to do so.

Cape Cod Children’s Museum has made great strides in the past year to upgrade its facilities and exhibits. As part of this we are also revisiting all our policies and procedures to insure the safest and best experience for the children who visit."
