Food Safety Education Classes

The Food & Lodging section recognizes that education is the least expensive, yet most effective means to reduce the occurrence of foodborne illness. We are committed to the protection of the health and well-being of the citizens of Craven County.

Increases in outbreaks of foodborne illness across the country have focused the public's attention on the causes and prevention of outbreaks in foodservice establishments, as well as at home. Changes in agricultural practices, ecological changes, international travel and commerce, changes in lifestyle, emerging pathogens and the high turnover rate in the foodservice industry, indicate the need for an ongoing food safety education program. The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety system is utilized to enable food service owners, managers, and foodservice employees to:

  • Identify the foods and procedures that are most likely to cause foodborne illness
  • Build in procedures that reduce the risks of foodborne outbreaks
  • Monitor all procedures to ensure food safety
