Fall weddings continue to grow in popularity, and the most popular wedding day of this year falls on October 19th.
Don’t overlook a very important part of the celebration – food safety. To help prevent food illness from happening at your wedding reception, it is important to put some research into food safety and which questions to ask the caterer for your big day.
The second full week of October is National School Lunch Week (NSLW) and promotes the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom.
Are you packing your child’s lunches? This week is the perfect week to brush up on your food safe packing skills. Send your kids to school with healthy and safe lunches.
National Pasta Day is October 16th! A day that celebrates the 600 pasta types, but also a perfect time to learn about food safety with pasta. Once pasta is cooked and begins to cool, a bacteria (Bacillus cereus) can grow and form toxins which cause foodborne illness.
Also, use the hashtag #NationalPastaDay on social media to find deals on pasta.
