Food & Safety Emergencies: Preparedness Activities for Schools Webinar

On Thursday, April 5, 2018, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT, the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) Office of Safe and Healthy Students (OSHS) and Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) Technical Assistance (TA) Center will host a Webinar on how K-12 schools and school districts can better prepare for food-related emergencies, as well as the role of food services in larger recovery efforts.

Presenters will discuss how to protect the K-12 school community from intentional and accidental food-related threats and hazards; how the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) can support preparedness efforts; and action steps to take to be ready for an emergency or disaster, as well as response and recovery considerations. This event will also feature a dedicated 15-minute Q&A session during which presenters will field questions from participants.
