Food Safety Alert
Food bugs love the warmer temperatures and thrive in protein and carbohydrate-based foods. To keep your food safe, be sure to safely pack hazardous food for your shindig.
As for washing your hands, be sure to locate the nearest hand washing sinks. Just to be safe, tote along your own moist towelettes, hand sanitizer and soap.
