Out of the collective grief and anger of individuals, whose children and families were unmercifully caught in what would come to be known as the West Coast E. coli Outbreak, STOP Foodborne Illness formed under the name Safe Tables Our Priority (STOP).
Today, STOP Foodborne Illness is the voice for all who want to turn awareness into action. We advocate tirelessly to regulate food handling and processing from farm to table. We partner with Congress, the USDA, the FDA, the CDC, and other relevant agencies and organizations to mitigate food safety risks through policy and legislation. We offer peer-to-peer mentoring for victims and families all over the country. We empower others to become food safety advocates themselves through free resources and up-to-date information. We are proud of our nationwide community of 31,000 activists and supporters.
