Free food safety training for community groups

12/09/2018

Hilltops Council is inviting members of community groups and not for profit organisations to take part in a free food safety training workshop to provide education regarding the safe delivery of food during fundraising activities.
 
 
Hilltops Council General Manager Dr Edwina Marks said the training is open to all not for profit community group members The training is designed for anyone who is involved in the handling of food to the public, or anyone who has an interest in the preparation and serving of food. This may include sporting or community groups undertaking fundraising drives and barbecues, or those involved in the preparation of any other food that will be sold as part of a wider activity of a not for profit organisation, sporting or community group.”
 
“These food safety workshops will be held in Boorowa, Harden and Young to ensure accessibility for anyone who would like to participate. This is a free service to the community provided by Hilltops Council, there is no fee associated with attending.” Said Dr Marks.
 
These workshops do not replace the ‘Food Safety Supervisor’ course which is required by food businesses. The requirement to appoint a ‘Food Safety Supervisor’ does not apply to not for profit organisations, community groups or sporting groups. Courses will run for approximately one hour.
