2022 Cooking for Crowds Online Training

Feb. 8, 2022 -- Feb. 23, 2022 -- March 21, 2022 -- April 26, 2022 -- May 11, 2022

Is your organization preparing for a food event? Cooking for Crowds classes educate groups who offer food fundraisers and events such as dinners and bake sales.
Join MSU Extension for this online Zoom class to learn how to keep the community safe and prevent foodborne illness. There are a variety of food safety risks that develop when cooking large volumes of food. Learn to reduce these risks and help prevent the conditions that may lead to a foodborne illness. Educational topics include foodborne illness, safe purchasing, storage, preparation and service of food. Class will include information based on the Michigan food code and regulations for the state of Michigan. 

The cost for this 3-hour class is $15 with each participant receiving a food safety manual in the mail after registering for the class. You are not required to read the book before class. It is a reference for class but also very helpful to refer to when preparing for your food events.

**If registering less than 1 week prior to class, we can't guarantee your food safety manual will arrive before class. We will mail it as soon as you register, but you might receive it after the class session.**
