Education Programs for Food Service Workers and Managers

UNH Cooperative Extension offers two food safety and sanitation programs for food service workers and managers.

Safety Awareness in the Food Environment (SAFE)

The SAFE program is an interactive, two-hour workshop for food workers. This introductory program focuses on the importance of personal hygiene and controlling time, temperature, and cross contamination as food flows through your food service operation.

For more information or to schedule a program for your facility, please contact your UNH Cooperative Extension county office.
