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!

They provide great information that as a Local Health Jurisdiction can be passed on to the public particularly via our "Healthy Communities" staff.

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!

I used portions of the BAC story in my classroom. I teach high school life skills, so we used this in our cooking class. It worked GREAT! The information provided was a great source to start learning about food safety. I liked the activities and used them as anchor activities. After we read through the information, read the story, and watched the video, we made our own videos to show what to do. It was so helpful to have this information already out there and put together in a useful format!

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.

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).

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.
