Selling and serving food remains a popular fundraising activity for community groups.

Any time your group sells food, certain procedures must be followed to ensure that the food is wholesome, safe, and at low risk of causing food-borne illness. 

Join us to address these issues in a fun and interactive workshop.

Topics will explore:

  • Planning Events - Preparing Food 
  • Storing Food Supplies - Serving Food 
  • Transporting Food - Handling Leftovers

The program's cost will be $10 (per person), including a take-home manual and thermometer.
