Thanksgiving is a time to gather, not only with family, but also a time for fellowship in our churches. Safe food preparation is a goal of all good chefs and helpers
whether preparing meals for home or for church. The holidays are a great time to review Food Safety Guidelines for Home and Church Kitchens.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that every year approximately 76 million people in the United States become ill from harmful bacteria in food. To minimize food risks, share a written policy/guidelines regarding food preparation/food safety with all employees and/or volunteers who work in your kitchen should receive training on these procedures.
