Does your organization know the food safety risks that result from cooking large volumes of food? Even those who have been volunteering for years might not be aware of the additional safety risks that come with cooking large quantities of food. Penn State Extension’s ‘Cooking for Crowds’ covers topics such as how food becomes unsafe, preparation practices to keep food safe, and purchasing and storage of food and supplies.
