Description

What better way to continue your service to this great nation than to provide high quality food to your community. Food safety is a critical part of any farm operation. This hands-on workshop provides an introduction to food safety for people who grow produce and provides important information you need to know in order to safely sell your products.

• Registration is free / Open to military Veterans (military ID required at check-in)
• Receive a complimentary tool kit (digital food thermometer included)
• Learn about Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
• Participate in a mock farmer’s market booth inspection
• Network with other Veterans
• Lunch is included
• Space is limited / 15 people per training

We will be indoors and outdoors. Please dress comfortably and bring a cap.

If for any reason you can not attend after registering please let us know as soon as possible. We will give your space to someone on the waiting list.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
