Cooking for Crowds is an educational program for non-profit groups that prepare food for their members or for the general public as fundraisers. The curriculum is designed to show the food safety risks that can develop when preparing and cooking large volumes of food and how to reduce those risks. Participants will learn how to prevent unsafe conditions that may cause foodborne illness when planning, purchasing, storing, preparing and serving food. Participants in the workshops will receive a manual and a food safety participation certificate of completion. Cooking for crowds is not the same thing as cooking a meal for your family. There are potentially hazardous foods that you may be preparing, and you should know what you need to do to keep them safe for the public. If your volunteers know what to do as far as personal hygiene and holding temperatures, you’ll be on your way to keeping your food safe.
