Food Safety Education
Food Safety Information
Food safety is a priority for all events to maintain a healthy environment and to reduce the risk of foodborne illness. It is important that 4-H groups prepare and serve food in compliance with state laws and local health department rules, including securing appropriate permits. Where the risk is higher, such as events where food is served to a large number of people in the public, food safety training is essential.
The goal of food safety education is to minimize the risk of foodborne illness at 4-H events where food is prepared or served. This information is available as brochures.
General food safety information provided is available by clicking: Food Safety Education
