Safe Food Handling
Food safety is an important public health issue and a top priority at the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. Our network exists out of compassion and a desire to help others and the last thing we want is for someone to become sick from the food they receive. Partner Agencies must implement proper food handling measures to ensure that the product being distributed is safe. Feeding America and the Foodbank requires that ALL Partner Agencies complete a class on safe food handling.
In the coming months our Food Rescue coordinator, Leonna Benson, will be contacting each agency to schedule a Food Safety class. At least one person from your agency must attend and after successful completion of the class, you will receive a ServSafe food handler's certificate of completion for this two hour course.
