At the moment I am not serving in an education role; however, I completed my Masters in Public Health and are very much involved in understanding, protecting, and sharing information on healthy eating and our environment. I work in a hospital setting and I print and share all newsletters received. Keep them coming and thank you kindly.

I use the BAC puppet and curriculum in all of my nutrition classes starting in September. We talk about the core four. The information is understandable for child and adult audiences.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep the contest coming. The students really enjoyed participating in the Halloween Germ Contest.

I have used your educational materials on Food Safety for safety meetings for my staff. We found your material to be relevant, interesting and professionally prepared. Many of your e-mails get circulated to staff and to our relatives and friends. Keep up the good work!

I attended the IAFP annual meeting last year and met couple of ladies at your booth. I was impressed by the great literature on food safety and particularly pamphlets for home makers, school children, etc. One of the ladies was quite energized and passionate about the need to spread the gospel of "food safety for all." I thank you for your efforts and dedication and as a food scientist and one who is equally committed to the field of food science & food safety I say keep up the good work ( I will look for your booth again during this year's IAFP in Indianapolis in early August).

Come to the realization that the issue of food safety - "is a long drawn battle and it is about behavioral changes" that tango with beliefs, and many factors. Success may need to be measured in a small incremental but to stay consistent and not be afraid to use the new media targeted to the appropriate groups.

This organisation was a great source of valuable information to teams of middle schoolers who were researching Food Safety as part of the " Food Factor " FIRST Lego League Competition. This is a global competition which encourages an early interest in STEM (Science, technology, engineering and Math). In response to our request for information for their research, Executive Director Shelley Feist kindly came to our school in Northern Virginia to speak to the 8 teams about the causes of food borne illnesses and the importance of food safety. It was a great start to their research and much appreciated by them all. Thank You.
