Webinar: Food Safety Needs of Adult Day Care Centers in the CACFP
Did you know it's Food Safety month? The USDA and Institute of Child Nutrition are providing a webinar to talk about Food Safety, specifically for adult participants in the CACFP!
Food safety is important for adult day care centers as older adults often have health conditions and suppressed immune systems. This makes them more susceptible to and less able to recover from foodborne illnesses. The Food Safety Branch of the Food Safety and Nutrition Division of USDA will present the results of a USDA national survey of adult day care centers that provided data on current food safety education and needs of adult day care centers. The webinar will also provide adult day care staff the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. The Institute of Child Nutrition will present their new, free resources for adult day care centers.
1. Review the Study of Food Safety Needs of Adult Day Care Centers in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) to identify the food safety knowledge gaps related to food safety practices in adult day care centers.
2. Identify current food safety resources available to help adult day care center program operators prevent foodborne illness among participants.
3. Identify the top food safety resource needs for adult day care center operators and provide input for the future development of resources.
