This year in the lead up to World Food Safety Day, June 7 2020, the Partnership for Food Safety Education is recognizing the people who keep us fed during the COVID-19 pandemic and every other day of the year. They are asking for help as they try to shine a light on Food Safety Heroes.
This is a chance to recognize someone you know that has been working on the front line to ensure people are getting healthy and safe meals.
This is the second World Food Safety Day. It is an annual observance supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The Codex Alimentarius Commission first raised the idea in 2016, with last year’s 2019 World Food Safety Day being the first observance.
How to participate and recognize a Food Safety Hero
To recognize a Food Safety Hero, the Partnership for Food Safety Education asks you to make a 1-2 minute video, following this DIY guide.
Use this form to nominate your Food Safety Hero and upload a short video.
The Partnership for Food Safety Education will contact you to build out the story of that person.
You can also recognize a Food Safety Hero on social media, using the hashtags #foodsafetyhero #BACFighter and #worldfoodsafetyday so the Partnership for Food Safety Education can share your post and recognize that person.
Send your video as soon as possible as the Partnership for Food Safety Education wants to feature them online leading up to World Food Safety Day on June 7.
