School Food Safety
Committee Members Announced
ALEXANDRIA, Va., (September 26, 2001) – The School Food Service Foundation, sister organization of the American School Food Service Association (ASFSA), announced the formation of its School Food Safety Committee today, along with the names of 12 committee members. The Committee was formed to oversee the Foundation’s participation in a coalition of national organizations to build the capacity of schools to prevent foodborne illness through coordinated school health programs.
Members of the School Food Safety Committee are charged with strengthening the capacity of school foodservice professionals to prevent and/or better manage school-based foodborne illness outbreaks, along with overseeing the implementation of a model, coordinated school food safety program. The school food safety initiative is a result of a grant awarded last month by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that funds a one-year project to provide quality food safety programming for school foodservice operations.
