This workshop is a continuation of the first class for those who would like to learn (and share) more. We will concentrate on how to get our teammates on board to food safety.
"I remember the first time I took a serve safe class and how I dreaded it. I had been cooking for years and was very aware of food safety and I was a very clean and careful cook. As I know you are. You may already know and use in practice most, if not all, of the material we will cover tonight - so think of this as a refresher course and let's try to have some fun with it. I will try to make the material we need to cover interesting and not make it so repetitive that you fall asleep," Lin Smith, SSKP volunteer coordinator and safe serve manager.
