Food safety, people safety
At the site training, the meal sponsor sponsor will provide detailed information about adhering to local, state, and federal food and health safety standards. For the safety of the children and to maintain site and sponsor integrity, it is imperative that the library complies with the standards rigorously and exactly as the sponsor demonstrated in the training. Failure to comply can result in the site being closed down or jeopardize the sponsor’s ability to operate the program. In some communities, the health inspector may visit sites.
