Food Safety Class Coming Up
January 9th, 2012
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that each year roughly 1 out of every 6 Americans gets sick and 3,000 people die from a foodborne disease in this country. Many church and community groups prepare and serve food as a way to generate funds for their various projects. Michigan State University Extension will offer a food safety class entitled Cooking for Crowds in St. Clair County, a program designed to educate nonprofit groups who prepare food for their members or the general public as part of food fundraisers and events. The class will be held February 15 from noon-3 p.m. at the St. Clair County Administration Building, Conference Room A. Cost for the class is $10 per person, which includes a 115 page manual with check lists and information to help safely plan and implement food fundraisers or events. Preregistration and payment is required. Please call MSU Extension-Huron County at 989-269-9949 for more information and to register.
