Cooking Safely for a Crowd to be held in Mabel


Mon, Jun 8th, 2015
Posted in Mabel Health & Wellness

We need to change the ways we handle food. Today, our food comes from all over the world. New, stronger bacteria and viruses are finding their way into our food. Also, food handling for large events is very different than home cooking. It is important that people who prepare, handle, or serve food know and practice safe food handling techniques. Though foodborne illnesses can be as mild as a stomach ache, they can also be fatal or cause long-term disability.

There will be a Cooking Safely for a Crowd workshop at the Mabel American Legion on Wednesday, June 17 from 7 -9:45 p.m. This workshop will be instructed by retired Extension Educator, Carol Burtness and Naomi Fruechte.

This workshop will cover:

• Foodborne illness: causes, concerns, and past outbreaks at community events.

• Personal hygiene and handwashing for safe food.

• Purchasing, storing, and preparing foods safely.

• Heating and reheating; cooling, holding, and serving safe food .

• Times, temperatures, and preventing cross-contamination.

• New legal requirements for unlicensed kitchens .

You should plan to attend this workshop if you plan, prepare or serve food at large group events. This includes cooks and servers at church and community events that occur every week or once a year. This workshop will satisfy the requirement for a trained volunteer as stated in Minn. Statutes 157.22, as amended during the 2011 legislative session. Recertification is required every three years. The last time this workshop was offered in Mabel was in 2012.

Registrations are due to Bev Williams with a $3 fee made payable to Bev Williams to cover materials and snack by Friday, June 12. Registrations can be sent to Bev at 11511 455th Ave., Mabel, Minn. 55954. If you have questions, contact Bev at (507) 493-5284 or (507) 450-0992.
