ERCM Express [Vol. 2, Iss. 5]: Food Safety and Food Defense for Schools   [open pdf - 376KB]

U.S. Department of Education Emergency Response and Crisis Management Technical Assistance Center Newsletter (ERCM Express) highlighting Food Safety and Food Defense for Schools: "Many schools and school districts across the country have established emergency management plans; however, these plans are often not comprehensive, practiced regularly or written in collaboration with the local community. It is recommended that schools adopt a multi-hazard approach to addressing their vulnerabilities. Food service operations in particular--including school cafeterias, central kitchens, warehouses or food delivery services--pose risks to schools. Emergency management plans should not overlook the possibility of food service operational disruptions such as equipment failures, loss of power or contamination."
