311998 FNPSW: HACCP (3 Day Session)
8:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Fort McIntosh Room
*** NOTE: IF YOU REGISTER FOR THIS SESSION, YOU MUST ATTEND ALL THREE DAYS ***The purpose of a food safety plan is to ensure the food served to children in the Child Nutrition Programs is safe. By controlling hazards that may occur or may be introduced into foods, school nutrition employees can safeguard food. An effective food safety program will help control food safety hazards that might occur during all points in foodservice ? receiving, storing, preparing, cooking, cooling, reheating, holding, packaging, transporting, and serving. A truly effective food safety plan needs to be developed for a specific school nutrition program (SNP). By developing a food safety plan for the specs of a school (equipment, staff, physical location, etc.), the number of hazards can be significantly reduced for that site. The goal of this 2.5-day workshop is for participants to take a detailed draft of a school specific, HACCP-based food safety plan back to their SNPs. This instructor-led workshop incorporates individual work, group discussion, partner work, pre-made templates, and other resources.
