Food-Safe Schools Action Guide

The Action Guide is intended to help you coordinate all aspects of food safety to create a culture of food safety. Think of it as an umbrella that covers many important areas of food safety that need to be considered when serving food in schools. The Action Guide identifies Federal food safety requirements that schools are required to meet, as well as other important areas that should be addressed to have a top-notch food safety program. The Action Guide also identifies the roles that others (e.g., teachers, parents, school nurses) in the school community play in the school’s food safety efforts.
