Plan ahead to reduce risk when serving food to the public

4-H programs serve food to the public in a variety of ways. Use the guidelines and resources found on the food safety and service site for the following:

  • Serving food to the public - food stands and dining halls.
  • Serving food or hosting a potluck at a 4-H program.
  • Club or federation/council bake sales.

Careful planning can ensure risk is minimized, local training is provided, any licensing requirements are met and food is handled safely. Questions? Work with your 4-H program coordinator.
