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.

If you’re planning to grill burgers, steaks, kabobs or chicken, be sure you follow our tips to keep everyone safe. You may want to bring your food thermometer or invest in one.

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.

Have a safe and healthy outdoor feast!
