Food safety program offered Wednesday

August 16, 2009

BOONSBORO -- Anyone involved with food preparation for family reunions, church dinners, community gatherings or concession stands is invited to a free program on food safety being sponsored by the Boonsboro Recycling Task Force on Wednesday. 

Christopher Herrmann will present an hourlong program titled "Cooking for Groups -- A Volunteer's Guide to Food Safety" from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Boonsboro Community Center in Shafer Park.

Herrmann is a senior consultant with Sherwin Food Safety, a Maryland-based company, and has volunteered his services to help community volunteers safely prepare and serve food for large groups.

Some of the topics to be covered include the importance of being clean, planning for an event, shopping tips for safety, proper storage of foods, preparation safety, cooking essentials, chilling hot food, transportation of hot and cold food, reheating food, and presentation of and serving food.

The Recycling Task Force is sponsoring the safety program as part of its mission to serve the community through education and outreach.

Besides promoting recycling in the Boonsboro community, members also presented the first Boonsboro Green Fest in May, and started environmental clubs in the town's middle and high schools, among other things.

Participants are welcome to stay after the program for the Task Force's regular monthly meeting, organizers said.
