Cooking for Crowds-May 17, 2018
Cooking for Crowds
Food Safety Training
Are you planning to prepare food for a large group of people as part of a fundraiser or another special event?
Cooking for Crowds teaches you how to safely prepare large amounts of foods.
This workshop will help you recognize the hazards to food safety that can arise when you have volunteers who may only be familiar with cooking for a family. If you think this workshop would be useful for you and/or your organization, please join me on May 17th, 7 p.m. at the Warrenton Rural Fire Department, 236 S Main St, Warrenton, NC 27589 for Cooking for Crowds.
Why Cooking for Crowds? Food-borne illness, commonly known as “food poisoning,” sickens approximately 1 in 6 people in the U.S. each year. That’s 48 million people! The most common types of food-borne illness include Salmonella, E. Coli, Listeria, and Norovirus. Food-borne illness results in unpleasant, sometimes severe, gastrointestinal discomfort, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, fever, and chills. Dehydration resulting from the symptoms of food-borne illness is also common. Food-borne illness can result in hospitalization and even death. Protect those you serve from food-borne illness through gaining an understanding of pathogens that cause food-borne illness, improper food handling, poor hygiene practices, neglect of temperature control, and more.
This training is free and open to the public. If you have any questions contact Dominque Simon at 252-257-3640, firstname.lastname@example.org.
