Food Safety

Food safety programming is an integral component of healthy food systems due to new federal food safety legislation, concerns about food safety risks from fresh produce, an emphasis on increased fruit and vegetable consumption, interest in school gardens, farm to school, food preservation, and continuing increases in food consumed that is prepared away from home. In addition, federal, state and industry regulations and standards may require that individuals receive special training or certification regarding worker safety, quality assurance and environmental protection. Educational programs train consumers and food handlers in practices to preserve and serve safe food.
