Food that is mishandled can cause many very serious consequences. For this reason it is important that the food at events such as family reunions, church dinners, and community gatherings be prepared and served correctly – whether the food is prepared in a volunteer’s home and brought to the event or prepared and served at the gathering. Events such as these should not be threatened by food borne illnesses. This information class is for volunteers preparing and serving food where often health inspections are not required. Presenter is Harriet Armstrong, Bartholomew County Extension Health & Human Sciences Program Assistant.
