Emergency Shelter Food Handling Safety

When disaster strikes and volunteers respond to help out either in shelters or out in the community, it is important that they have the skills to do whatever job they are assigned. If they are given the responsibility of serving food to either victims of the disaster or responders, they will need to know some basic food handling information in order to keep the food safe and healthy. This video is intended to provide basic food handling training in four different segments: Clean, Separate, Cook, and Chill. Videos are available in English, English with captions and Spanish.
