Please follow these food handling guidelines
As in any situation where food is being prepared and offered for sale to the public, caution must be exercised to provide safe food. Although the traditional bake sale foods such as bread, buns, pies, cookies, and candies rarely cause illnesses, it is important to remember that under the right circumstances any food can cause food borne illnesses. ITEMS INCLUDING NUTS MUST BE LABLED AS SUCH; all other should be labeled “No Nuts”.
- Wash your hands prior to handling food and anytime you could contaminate your hands, such as coughing, eating, handling garbage, or using the bathroom.
- Remove all poisonous items such as insecticides, detergents, cleaners, polishes, etc. from preparation area to prevent accidental contamination.
- Clean and sanitize preparation area and serving table.
- Clean all food contact surfaces with warm water and soap.
- Use cloth or paper towels. Do not use sponges.
- After cleaning, sanitize works surfaces with 1.2 teaspoons chlorine bleach to one quart water.
- For easy use, sanitizing mixture can be put into a new spray bottle labeled CHLORINE SANITIZER.
- Be sure long hair is pulled back in a ponytail, with clips or in a hair net.
