Preventing foodborne illness and ensuring a safer food supply
In 2017, MSU Extension reached over 5,300 people through food safety programming. After attending food safety classes, participants use safer food-handling, preparation, storage and preservation techniques. As a result, consumers can have increased confidence when they receive food from a properly trained professional, whether it is from a food retailer, restaurant, farmers market or an organization serving a community meal.
Cooking for Crowds is a workshop for nonprofit groups that prepare food for fundraisers. Participants will learn how to prevent unsafe conditions that may cause foodborne illness when planning, purchasing, storing, preparing and serving food.
