Did you know that 1 on 6 Americans becomes ill from eating contaminated food? Food safety is an important aspect to running an emergency food program and requires a commitment from everyone to make sure food is received, stored and distributed in the right manner. In honor of National Food Safety Education Month, we invite you to renew your commitment to running a top-notch, food safe emergency food program. Rally your team and complete the Food Pantry Self-Assessment Guide and/or Soup Kitchen Self-Assessment Guide to identify areas for improvement, have additional pantry and kitchen workers trained for free in food safety at United Way of NYC, Food Bank For NYC, or City Harvest, and lastly remember the best food safety advice … when in doubt, throw it out.
