The Food-Safe Schools Action Guide
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
"The Food-Safe School Needs Assessment and Planning Guide" is a tool that can help schools assess their food safety policies, procedures, and programs and develop plans for improvement. This tool includes a simple, straightforward questionnaire, score card, and planning guide that give administrators, school staff, families, and students a chance to get involved and work together to create a food-safe school. It will help schools: (1) Identify the strengths and weaknesses of their food safety policies, procedures, and programs; (2) Develop an action plan for improving school food safety and outbreak detection and response; (3) Involve teachers, food service staff, school nurses, school administrators, families, students, and the community (including local health departments and cooperative extension agencies) in improving school food safety; and (4) Incorporate food safety activities in their school improvement plans. [This guide was produced by the National Coalition for Food Safe Schools, an alliance of representatives from a variety of national organizations, professional associations, and government agencies.]
