We all know the importance of food safety, especially when it comes to distributing food to clients that may be more susceptible to food borne illnesses. Each Member Agency is responsible for ensuring that its program staff and volunteers are trained properly in hygiene, safe handling of food, and dealing with the public in a professional manner.
The Food Bank for Larimer County has food safety information available for your review
