The virus cannot GROW on food, it needs a host to ATTACH to its cells in order to replicate. HOWEVER, if the food you are eating was handled by someone with the virus, you can get infected from the food, the same way you would if you were to touch a surface that was compromised by someone with the virus.......So when you buy ANY food whether it is open or closed packaging, it was touched by one or more people at some point. Packaged meat, fish, etc, they were all handled by hands at some point, so it all comes down to hygiene and whether people who work in the food industry are applying measures. Your risk of being infected through food is at the same level as you touching a surface then touching an opening in your body for the virus to enter through.

Might not be a bad idea to use kitchen gloves to remove food from packages, then wash your hands thoroughly.
For meat, the same, and make sure meat is well cooked according to the temperature guidelines.

As far as chicken, lamb, fish and other meats for consumption around the world, there is no evidence that these animals themselves are infected. The only evidence of infection are the wild life animals that were not meant to be in close proximity to other animals (wet markets). So unless you are eating wild life from illegal markets, then you should be fine if you apply the same rules, wash wash wash, and cook well.

A food is a surface, so the same rules apply. Even when you touch a can of food to open, that surface may have been touched by someone infected, so you can get infected also from the surface directly.
