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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
