The partnership provides a wealth of information on food safety and is always looking to improve its messaging to help keep consumers safe.
I heard about this recipe competition on some food safety education website and decided to enter. What I got instead was an awesome new website and resource for creating safe recipes. What a simple, yet ingenious concept: building food safety right in the recipe. Since I work with younger people, and am constantly in the recipe world, this changes a lot of what I do. And yes, I still entered the contest!
Checked out the website for the first time today. It was informative, as well as easy to read and easy to navigate. I love the Core Four practices. Kind of common sense? But you'd be amazed how easy it is to slip up when you get to hurrying in the kitchen.
I attended the 2019 FNCE conference in Philadelphia, PA last October and was very impressed with the wealth of information and resources the Partnership for Saftey Education made available. They're truly dedicated to keeping us educated and healthy.
I have worked with this program and used their materials for around 20 years. The materials are research-based and produced for many different, specific audiences so that there is always something that you can use that works with your audience. I have worked with these materials as a college professor and as a community volunteer with youth groups, senior programs and professionals. They are the best!
Before my retirement I taught food safety to university students (professor), Cooperative Extension professionals (Extension specialist) and K-12 students (Girl Scout leader). The materials were always easy to access, up-to-date and CLIENT-FOCUSED. This is important in a world of Web access to materials that may be cute and provocative but are not accurate. Thanks!
I am a middle school Family and Consumer Science teacher and use the Partnership for Food Safety Education resources with all of my food units!
As a leader of consumer food safety education, the Partnership devoted its resources and energy to initiate and support consumers and educators with science-based materials. The Partnership has done a good job to engage educators, including extension educators, health professionals, and school teachers, who are the trusted sources for food safety information in communities. Keep up the good work and let's fight foodborne illness with effective education and communication!
As a Consumer Food Safety Specialist at a land-grant university, I would love to give the biggest shoutout to the Partnership! They are very active and serve as the resource hub for consumer food safety education. They host conference that benefit government, industry, academics, and most importantly, consumers! They are an important organization with the greatest passion to fight food-borne illnesses! They also provide a perfect professional development platform for students who are interested in food safety!
As an Extension educator and train-the-trainer, I have used the FightBac! materials in my programs and encourage other educators to use them, as well. The Four Core Practices are easy to incorporate into our own food safety programs, and they are easy to explain to our program participants. Our educators also love your webinars. We are especially glad to see your new recipes with basic food safety steps added. This is something we have needed for a long time. Thank you for all you do!
The partnership is such a valuable resource and tool for our organization. We use their materials state-wide and they save us time and resources. Working with an older population--food safety is a particular concern. I highly recommend reaching out to their staff-they are always open to ideas and collaborations!
Partnership for Food Safety is one of the best organizations out there today.
With so many parents and people in general being so busy and over worked it is easy to forget to take precautions in the kitchen and being safe.
Getting back to basics and washing hands throughout the day, simple steps to keep your food and kitchen safe is so easy to do.
A must for every house hold. as educators we find showing and demonstrating to our students is key. Students go home and share healthy habits to keep food and kitchens safe with parents. Thank you ,

It’s so refreshing when an organization makes a positive difference in the lives of millions of Americans. This is exactly what The Partnership for Food Safety Education does consistently throughout the year. From engaging with academic food safety experts, food industry professionals, consumer groups with a vested interest in a safe food supply, and federal agencies responsible for food safety oversight, The Partnership brings together all groups that drives productive change for Americans to enjoy their meals using four basic principles: Clean | Separate | Cook | Chill. The Partnership is grounded in helping deliver proactive food safety tools for all citizens throughout the year.
The Partnership for Food Safety Education delivers trusted, science-based behavioral health messaging and a network of resources that support consumers in their efforts to reduce their risk of foodborne illness. These resources are used by active network of 13,000 health and food safety educators. This consumer education closes the last link in the food safety chain. The Partnership convenes industry, government and NGOs to deliver this important public health service.
The Partnership for Food Safety Education unflaggingly lives its mission to reduce foodborne illness. It drives production, curation and dissemination of free resources to educators who help consumers understand how to handle food safely. Supported by the food industry, consumer groups, and government agencies, the Partnership exhibits strong, transparent stewardship of the Fight BAC! program.
The Partnership delivers trusted, science-based behavioral health messaging and a network of resources that support consumers in their efforts to reduce risk of foodborne illness. It works with an active network of 13,000 health and food safety educators – called BAC Fighters!- and support them by making their work more visible, collaborative, and effective. These BAC Fighters are connecting each year with an estimated 7.5 million consumers –helping them to protect their health through safe food handling and hand hygiene.
I am a food safety specialist for a multi-million dollar food manufacturing plant and the information I have received from the Partnership is immensely valuable in many ways. The information is always current, applicable and very interesting to read and apply in my job. I'm also able to use the Partnership's webinars and online food safety programs for continuing education credits for my CP-FS credential.
The Partnership for Food Safety Education is a great and valuable resource for food safety information. I teach food safety skills for workers in assisted living and the handouts that PFSE provides are so helpful. I love the conference and was so sad that I had to miss it this year. This is a non-profit that is doing great work that we really need with the evolution of the food production cycle.
Today you can't take food safety for granted. The Partnership for Food Safety Education provides easy to understand tips on keeping my family safe. My wife, daughter and granddaughters frequently receive Partnership information forwarded to them. It makes a difference!
An educational and informative FREE resource to assist the community in safe food handling and reducing the risk of a foodborne illness. Thank you for all of your hard work.
Fabulous organization with a commitment to serve others. Their total dedication to improving public health outcomes makes this one of the best organizations in the world! I am proud to be affiliated as a participating board member.
Thank you for everything you do for public food safety! Resources and trainings are very informative for all ages and groups, from infants and toddlers to seniors, from the general public to non-profit food service centers.
Great resources that are designed with general public use in mind, making their material invaluable in providing public health information to the participants I work with.
They are also generous in providing quality professional continuing education webinars!!
I have used their professional education programs and have found them very worthwhile with valuable information and excellent speakers. Keep up the good work.
I've used resources from the Partnership for many years in conducting food safety education in my community programs. I can always count on them for great materials!
Very helpful and, in most cases, free information provided for health and education professionals as well as for consumers in the very important area of food preparation and storage and prevention of contamination by bacteria.
Excellent information, the webinar series in particular. While the focus is food safety, the speakers successfully present the concepts so that they are applicable to the broader issue of health change behavior
I've worked as a communications associate with the Partnership since December 2017. It's such a great organization to work for! I am very passionate about the mission of helping to prevent foodborne illness. PFSE does great work to keep families safe.
It has been a privilege to serve on the PSFE's board. The Partnership's success is built on the recognition that education and behavior change must involve strong relationships. The Partnership leverages its network of thousands of "Bac fighters" to make food safety personal, and the stories of transformation are inspirational.
Fight Bac is such a great resource - they are my go-to resource when I am trying to find supportive information. I am working on a new curriculum for child care providers, and they have a multitude of resources that have been very helpful. The bi-annual conferences that they organize are well done and certainly make me want to go back.
Helping educate the public about food safety through excellent publications, infographics and programs.
The Partnership for Food Safety Education is relentlessly passionate about helping serve others to prevent foodborne illlneas.
Congratulations to the Partnership on 20 years of great work! Thank you for the science based food safety information and messages, knowledge exchanges and food safety conference you offer “BAC Fighters” in the field. The information and easy to use tools provided by the Partnership greatly increases my capacity as a public health educator working in food safety and communicable disease prevention. Looking forward to many more great years!!
Congratulations to the Partnership for 20 years of educating the American people about food safety! When my grandson died of E.coli O157:H7 in 2001, PFSE was only four years old and there weren’t as many BAC Fighters as there are today. It’s taken a lot of hard work, and while the results are amazing, there is still so much more to be done! As a Board member, I look forward to helping the Partnership to fulfill its mission of developing strong food safety messages so that all Americans can make informed decisions about the food they serve to themselves and their loved ones.

Congratulations in reaching 20 years for promoting food safety practices! Your webinars, teleconferences, & free downloadable hand outs have been an immense help to me in my profession with spreading the message of safer food handling practices to my clients. The science behind the information is made tangible to the average person & I've found positive responses from those I've referred to your website too. Keep up the great work!
I use the materials from PFSE to educate the public on the prevention of food poisoning via the regional poison control center for South Florida. It's very helpful to have the Fight BAC resources ready to go, and to know that they are well researched and focus-tested. I don't have much time to devote exclusively to food safety (with so many other poisons to educate about), so I appreciate the PFSE helping to fill that gap. We've also shared their social media posts via Florida and national poison control center social media. Thanks!
Happy 20th Anniversary, PFSE! The Partnership for Food Safety Education has provided high quality, timely, science-based resources for food safety educators, health professionals, teachers and families for 20 years! Whether it is a need for educational materials or ideas about evaluating outcomes, the Partnership helps BAC-Fighters nationwide protect public health. Best of all? The materials are free which is great for health educators and teachers with tight budgets! The Partnership plans and implements a Food Safety Education Conference that brings together food safety educators nationwide. It is a great opportunity to share experiences, get new ideas, network with other food safety professionals and learn how to be more effective as an educator. I have used Partnership campaigns such as Fight BAC!, MythBusters, ProducePro and others to reach audiences of adults and youth. If you haven't tried www.fightbac.org, don't let another year go by without it!
PFFSE provides a excellent educational information of a great value easy to understad and put it in action. Galo Medina.
Personal and helpful, even to a new member who requests insight and feedback. I wrote a blind email inquiring about all kinds of things and someone got right back to me and answered my questions, advised how to get involved AND suggested how they could help me. The overall purpose of this group, to educate on food safety, is worthy in itself. But to be able to provide a face with a name and an individual, communicate not via a mass e-mail shows the commitment the Partnership for Food Safety Education has to its mission as well as to its members and advocates. Mary Angela Miller, KeepSafeFood
As researcher in topics related to the Sustainability Theory, the issue of food safety emerged as the tip of the iceberg. Accordingly, the role of non profits such as Partnership for Food Safety Education is crucial. Prof. C Calcador
The Partnership for Food Safety Education is a wonderful organization dedicated to providing education to consumers about the importance of food safety. I believe that food safety is a topic that most people do not discuss. The Partnership for Food Safety has been an invaluable resource for my organization. We provide food safety training to caregivers of older adults, a population which is vulnerable to food-borne illness, and use many of the resources provided by the Partnership for Food Safety Education to teach safe food handling, preparation, and storage. The webinars and blogs published by the Partnership for Food Safety are very informative and the Partnership does a great job incorporating the experiences and practices of community members across the country. My agency has had the honor of being features twice this year in their national blog and given the opportunity to present our teaching strategies to board members of the Partnership for Food Safety this past May. The Partnership for Food Safety is doing a great service by spreading the word about such an important topic and our agency looks forward to working with them in the future.
Great information found on this site! I have used this in my job to better educate myself and our employees, also personally at home. We are a family who likes to get together for tailgating, barbecues and all holidays which means lots of food.
We used to leave food out on the counters for most of the day not really thinking about maintaining food temperature, well not anymore!
Educate yourself, protect your family, this site is educational, easy to follow and makes it fun to learn.
love the graphics on the bacteria guys! Definitely don't want them in my food!
I use the food safety information provided to further advance a culture of food safety in child nutrition programs.
Great information for me to pass along to my students as a Middle school Foods and Nutrition teacher! Plus, great to pass along to fellow staff members too.
A great site for educating the public on food safety. As an educator, I count on sites like The Partnership for Food Safety Education to pass on to my students in Dietary Management who then pass on to their employees!
I am an academic staff member and very interested and concerned with food safety issues particularly I am from a developing countries where I feel sorry for carelessness of the community regarding food labeling, food safety and food waste issues. I would like to start setting up NGO volunteer institute for consumer education and protection. Is it possible to help me.
They provide great information that as a Local Health Jurisdiction can be passed on to the public particularly via our "Healthy Communities" staff.
Factual information is provided using research-based knowledge. This group is trying to reach youth to adults to help prevent food borne illness. Excellent on line resources for teachers and others
This organization is an excellent source of food safety information for consumers and public health educators. It's food safety materials and messages
are accurate and easy to use.
PFSE provides professional offerings to keep myself, an educator, up to date on food safety. They also provide teaching tools that can be used with a variety of audiences.
The partnership has provided me with the tools I need to stay food safe at home. I am an avid user of a food thermometer and the temperature chart helps me know when my food si safe to eat. I also love the constant learning experiences and the resources provided that feature new research on food safety.
PFSE sends helpful emails regularly with updates on available information, videos, web events, and more. Text and content are easy to read without being overly simplistic -- appropriate both for professionals and consumers, and graphics enhance messages without being too silly or distracting. I know I can tap into this site for reliable, current facts and figures about food safety to share with friends, family, co-workers, and clients. In addition, I enjoy hearing about opportunities for earning Continuing Education credits through occasional learning activities. I am grateful that PFSE is available as a resource I can access easily and can trust for scientific validity.
I have supported this organization since its inception since it focuses on food safety at the grass roots level with basic messages that almost anyone can understand. The Fightbac program has been accepted by so many today and I believe has made an impact to reducing foodborne illness at the consumer level. The resources made available by this non profit has promoted consumer food safety at many levels and continues to reach out with effective food safety materials. I've used it in many of my food safety training efforts and believe it has made an impact. My last company was the first to achieve IAFP's Black Pearl award for corporate excellence in food safety and quality and Fightbac was part of that program.
I appreciate the education materials I find to use with my programs. The webinars I have viewed are well done and give us useful information.
FightBac keeps us updated with a continuous supply of quality resources and information that we pass on to our students and their communities to further encourage safe food practices. Examples include Mythbuster tips, great stories and presentations that make a difference to how the community perceives what is safe food practice and what is not. Thank you
Teaching food safety to teenagers is much easier when you are aware of this website - "Partnership for Food Safety Education".
I have been a high school teacher for many years and find that, while some teenagers think they know everything, many of them are woefully under prepared to protect themselves and others from foodborne illnesses. Partnership for food safety education provides excellent resources and information that are not only accurate, but appeal to teenagers. This is a valuable resource!
The Partnership for Food Safety Education is a great organization. I am a Family & Consumer Sciences Educator with WSU Extension, and I use their resources all the time in my work. I love the free, downloadable handouts because they are eye catching and the information is all based on research and USDA guidelines, which is very important in my line of work. I turned in an application to be a presenter at their annual food safety conference, and I can't wait to see the caliber of presenters they have gotten for the conference.
