The Safe Plates Training and Educational Programs branch primarily serves to provide consistent, evidence-based programs targeted to specific audiences. Programs are designed incorporating the best available science in food safety and presented considering adult education and behavior theories. 

Programs are typically delivered at county extension offices. For upcoming programming check the events page.

Resources within the Safe Plates brand include this website, infosheets, articles, videos, social media communication platforms, etc. that can provide evidence-based scientific information without direct contact with a Safe Plates team member or program. Follow our social media platforms to keep up with the latest news and resources.
