Church dinners offer great opportunities for fellowship. However, when you’re feeding a group of people, there’s always the potential for contaminated food to sicken everyone. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 in 6 Americans get food poisoning each year. By handling food safely, you can prevent bad food from spoiling a good time at your church or ministry. Follow these food safety tips to help keep your people healthy:
While the very young, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are most susceptible to food-borne illnesses, these illnesses pose grave threats to everyone. Talk with your local board of health to determine if you are following the guidelines for churches and church schools or programs. Work with them to ensure that you are following safe food preparation and serving practices. Consider posting safe food preparation and handling signs in your kitchen where they are easily seen and referenced.
