NC Safe Plates
NC Cooperative Extension offers NC Safe Plates for all those who work in the food service industry. The course helps food establishments meet the NC requirement of having at least one supervisor certified as a food protection manager, per the FDA Food Code 2013. NC Safe Plates is taught through case studies, storytelling, activities, and discussion. This class is interactive and encourages participants to engage with the material.
NC Safe Plates includes instruction on personal hygiene and employee health; purchasing and storage; eliminating cross-contamination; handling allergens; pest control and facility design; cleaning and sanitizing and correct temperatures for storing, preparing, and holding foods.
This course is designed for food employees who are seeking food protection manager certification.
