Support Clients in Handling Foods Safely


Many of our guests are concerned about the safety of their food. We posted information and we talk to our guests about how long food is good for. This seems to help ease concerns. – Sue Steinmetz, McFarland Food Pantry


Helping your clients make good food safety decisions is an important part of protecting public health. The Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program (WNEP) has county-based educators who are knowledgeable about food safety and trained in educating low-income audiences. Contact your county UW-Extension office today to discuss opportunities for food safety education for pantry clients. WNEP educators also have handouts and other materials to support food safety messaging.
