Food Safety Training for Volunteers

Come join UMaine Food Systems Professional Kathy Savoie and learn how to cook safely for large crowds. This workshop on Safe Food Handling is designed specifically for Volunteers. Participants receive a manual specifically designed for volunteer cooks, a certificate of attendance, and an Instant Read Thermometer. This class meets the Good Shepherd Food Bank food safety training requirements.

Many organizations and community groups rely on volunteers like you for a variety of food events for fundraising, fellowship, food pantries or other service to the community. But cooking for a crowd is tricky! How do you store all that food? When is the food completely cooked? How long can you leave food on the buffet table? Now there is a workshop on Safe Food Handling designed specifically for Volunteers.
