I work as a Public Health Nurse in the Communicable Disease Unit. Our unit has used the Fact or Myth information a number of times during Public Health Week. The information is very useful and a great reminder of some of our food myths, displayed on a trifold board with velco so you can pull off the question and then get the answer, also displayed a picture of the food item mentions in the Fact or Myth. We all enjoyed the display. Keep up the good work,

"An Educated Consumer is our Best Customer". That phrase was popularized by a well known clothing store spokesperson. I couldn't agree more, especially when it comes to Food Safety. An educated consumer who learns, lives, and teaches the four principles of Consumer Food Safety Education - CLEAN, SEPARATE, COOK and CHILL, is behaving safely and responsibly. They are our heroes. The Partnership for (Consumer) Food Safety Education staff, volunteers and partners all work so hard to educate consumers directly, and through educators including BAC fighters - a volunteer army of caring individuals committed to stamping out preventable foodborne illness. The Partnership staff do such a great job of preparing and providing easy-to-use materials, maintaining an awesome website and promoting foodsafe behaviors. They always stand ready to meet the needs of those that wish to carry the FightBac message forward. Thanks Partnership staff!

As an Extension Educator specializing in food safety education, The Partnership for Food Safety Education takes food safety messages further than most other food safety sources. They share research and explain the 'why' behind a recommendation invaluable. When I explain the 'why' behind a food safety recommendation, people listen and frequently respond, "I didn't know that..."

I use resources from the Partnership for Food Safety Education all the time in my professional life. The resources are great because they are kid-friendly and easy to use. Also, they satisfy my job requirements of only using research-based materials, handouts, etc. in my educational workshops.
