Putting small practices into place will help ensure that the food is safe from the farm to the table.”The training will offer basic safe food practices when harvesting fruits and vegetables, storing, transporting and handling while at the market.“Those who participate will also learn about how food-borne illness can occur and which populations are at greatest risk,” Lyons said.“Those who complete the training will receive a certificate that can be set up at their market stations and can be viewed by those attending the market.”Other resources and materials will also be available and used at the market stations.To register for the Farmer’s Market Food Safety training session, contact the Pike County Extension office at 334-566-0985. The registration fee is $5. A light lunch will be provided following the training. By Jaine Treadwell Print Article Latest Storieslast_img read more
