Caring about food safety

Caring About Food Safety is a short, self-guided course about the safe preparation and handling of food. The course, offered at no cost, is designed to raise awareness about protecting public health by preventing the spread of food-borne illness. Caring About Food Safety is for anyone who prepares, handles or serves food to people beyond their immediate friends and family. It will be particularly useful for people whose clients are typically more susceptible to food-borne illness, and for whom there are no mandated food-safety training requirements — such as operators of child daycares or small, residential-care facilities. The course is comprised of six major, interactive sections, which take about 1.5 hours in total: Why Learn about Food Safety; Buying Food; Storing Food; Preparing Food; Cooking Food; Cleaning Up; and Test Your Knowledge. Test Your Knowledge is a multiple-choice quiz participants take once they have worked through the other sections.
