September is National Food Safety Month

Sep 1

The theme for this year's National Food Safety Month (NFSM) is "Let it Flow," focusing on the flow of food through a restaurant. NFSM, held annually in September, was created in 1994 by the National Restaurant Association (NRA) to heighten awareness about the importance of food safety education. The NRA offers free resources for foodservice industry professionals and this year will highlight tips for a number of food safety topics including receiving, storage, thawing and holding, preparation and service. For more information and resources on NFSM, visit: "With our industry serving 130 million meals daily, food safety is always a top priority for the country's one million restaurant and foodservice establishments," said Phil Kafarakis, Chief Innovation & Member Advancement Officer for the National Restaurant Association. "Every September, we look forward to highlighting the industry's commitment to food safety education. This year, we are excited to share a variety of new resources with vital food safety tips and best practices." TRA and NRA offer food manager safety certification and training, food handler training and alcohol seller/server training online and in classroom settings to ensure that restaurant employees at all levels have the knowledge and skills necessary to serve customers safely.
