Food Safety for the Farm to School Farmer

03/15/2019 08:30 AM – 01:30 PM ET


This food safety focused workshop is designed to give farmers an understanding of what school nutrition purchasers look for when purchasing local food. Content includes basic food safety considerations and information on FSMA compliance, but is not an FDA approved FSMA training course. The workshop is customized to the location, with time built in for facilitated discussion with area school nutrition professionals. Interested farmers and purchasers will have the opportunity to discuss estimated demand and seasonal availability of local products, packaging and delivery requirements. School nutrition professionals are asked to bring bid documents to use for training tools during facilitated discussion.
