This fall and winter, we are having some great programming coming out of our Family and Consumer Sciences program at our Cooperative Extension center. In September, we will be holding our End-Of-Canning Season (EOCS) Series, September 4th, 11th, and 25th. We will start with an introduction to canning class, followed by two hands-on classes in Water-bath and Pressure Canning. On October 11th, we will be holding our first Safe Plates for Food Handlers class and 4-hour course that helps foodservice staff identify best safety practices when cooking and serving food. We will also have a Safe Plates for Food Manager class, December 9th through the 12th. Similar to the Food Handlers course, Safe Plates for Food Managers helps Foodservice managers and supervisory staff with obtaining knowledge for best food safety practices, while being able to become a certified Food Protection Manager. For more information about these programs, contact our Cooperative Extension office at (704) 283-3830. Hope to see you this fall and winter!
