Produce Safety Resources
FNS supports nutrition assistance programs with educational resources to promote and improve produce safety practices in their operations.
We offer many types of resources, including take-home training for professional standards, fact sheets, and training videos.
Produce Safety University
PSU is a one-week training course designed to help school foodservice staff identify and manage food safety risks associated with fresh produce. PSU addresses produce purchased from traditional suppliers, direct from farmers, and through the DoD Fresh program.
The course was developed by USDA’s FNS and Agricultural Marketing Service. The FNS Farm to School team is also an important contributor to PSU.
