Food Safety Class
July 30 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Preparing food in large quantities is different than food preparation in the home. Cooking for Crowds: A Volunteer’s Guide to Safe Food Handling program helps non-profit organizations and their volunteers understand the risks involved with preparing large volumes of food and the important food safety practices that need to be implemented to ensure a safe event. This program was developed in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and participants can receive a certificate of completion after attending the program. Penn State Extension educators and other faculty serve as instructors and are certified by the National Restaurant Association. All have received training on the most current research on food safety.
Class will be held Tuesday, July 30 from 9:30 am- 12:00 noon at the Ag Heritage Building,185 Franklin Farm Ln., Chambersburg. Registration fee is $50 for up to 4 people from the same organization or $25 for an individual. Register at http://extension.psu.edu/food/safety or call toll free 1-877-345-0691. Registration deadline is July 23.
Volunteers working with our mid-week programs, coffee corner and other events where food is prepared and served in our church are encouraged to attend.
