According to the World Health Organization, one in 10 people get ill by eating unsafe food each year. An upcoming Healthy Boiler workshop will address food safety to help attendees prevent foodborne illnesses in their kitchens. Supporting the physical health pillar of the Healthy Boiler Program, “Food Safety 101” takes place from noon to 1 p.m. ET March 31.
Jessica McKeever, registered dietitian at the Center for Healthy Living, will lead the workshop.
“Have you ever wondered if you are preparing, handling and storing your food properly for the safety of your family?” McKeever said. “Can you thaw chicken on the kitchen counter? What does ‘use-by date’ mean? Join me for the ‘Food Safety 101’ workshop to learn about the best ways to keep your family safe while you prepare food in the kitchen.”
Those interested in the workshop should register by March 30 via the Healthy Boiler Portal. The registration link can be found under the “Healthy Boiler Workshops” section on the portal’s homepage. Hover over the “Food Safety 101” square and click on “Submit” to register.
