4-H Club Foodstand Schedule & Guidelines

Foodstand Guidelines
The 4-H Foodstand at the Allamakee County Fair is one of the primary sources of funds available to the county 4-H program.  Money raised at the foodstand supports projects and events during the 4-H year.   The annual success of the foodstand is due to one big factor—YOU ! 
· Always be polite and courteous to your customers eating at the foodstand.
· Show up on time and stay until someone from the next shift is there to relieve you.
· Check in with the adult supervisor upon arrival for your shift at the back door.  Do not come through the front doors.
· Clubs coming on will have a short instructional sessionbehind the foodstand before beginning work.
· Your first concern is always to wait on customers.  When not waiting on customers, pick up litter, refill kitchen items, and generally clean up your work area.
· Older 4-H'ers need to work closely with younger membersto help them become acquainted with the foodstand procedures.
· There is NO FREE FOOD for volunteers or customers.
· Customers are VERY AWARE of how you handle their food.  Keep your hands clean at all times.  Hand sink & towels are by the back door.  Dish washing sink is not for washing hands.
