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. This workshop provides practical food safety strategies for nonprofit organizations that prepare and serve food.

About Author

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
