by | Feb 3, 2021 | Community

Join us for two great food safety webinars this month—they’re informative, useful, the hosts are friendly, and they’re free for anyone!

Food Safety Basics

Does “best before” really mean “bad after”? Our Food Safety Basics webinar session unpacks the four key ways to avoid the growth of harmful micro-organisms while providing you with the tools to prevent unnecessary food waste caused by misinterpreting best-before date labels. A solid educational resource for food business staff, food program volunteers and anyone who wants a food-safe, zero-waste kitchen.

Pro tip: Does the student or teacher in your life need a classroom resource or activity on health and nutrition? This webinar is a great fit for secondary students, too.
