Retired faculty Julia Zee joined The Food Basket, Hawai‘i Island’s food bank, in distributing emergency food boxes island wide. She also printed 500 copies of a “Safe Food Handling” handout to include in each box.
“While COVID-19 doesn’t appear to be transmitted through food, The Food Basket understands that food safety is still critical during this time when residents are in need of food and assistance,” says Julia.
The farm food safety education team has also sent out information to farmers and agricultural stakeholders about farm food safety strategies and to support the continued supply of locally grown foods.
