Hands On: Real World Lessons for Middle School Classrooms – Food Safety is a comprehensive curriculum designed as a vehicle to reduce the occurrence of foodborne illness, to increase awareness around personal hygiene and to encourage safe food preparation practices. Foodborne illness can be prevented if consumers adopt proper practices for safe food handling and preparation. Food safety awareness, particularly among the young, is low and food safety education in the formative middle schools years is a proven catalyst to prevent foodborne illness.
