That’s why the IFIC Foundation is spending September—Food Safety Education Month—helping educate the public about why “Food Safety Matters.” The theme underscores how everyone, along the entire supply chain from farm to fork, has a role to play in enhancing the safety of the food and beverages we consume.

Some of the activities include:

  •     A webinar Sept. 19 from 2–3 p.m. Registered dietitians and dietetic technicians who take part may earn one Continuing Professional Education credit hour. Speakers will include Britanny Saunier, project and development associate at the Partnership for Food Safety Education; CiCi Williamson, food safety specialist with the Meat and Poultry Hotline at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service; and Tony Flood, IFIC’s senior director for food safety communications.
