Recent foodborne illness outbreaks have many people concerned about the safety of the food we eat. Foodservice workers who would like to update their food safety knowledge and skills are invited to attend a workshop on May 16th in North Platte. The ServSafe food safety training course will be held at the West Central Research and Extension Center at 402 West State Farm Road. The class will run from 8:30 to 5:00. Certification by the National Restaurant Association is given to those who complete the training and pass certification requirements. The program will be presented by Nebraska Extension professionals and Nebraska food inspectors.
There is a fee for the class which includes the course manual. Class size is limited and pre-registration is required. Registration is due by May 2nd. Contact the Hitchcock County Extension Office at (308) 334-5666 for a program brochure or find it on the website at http://sw3.unl.edu.
