September marks the 16th year of National Food Safety Education Month. This year’s theme is “High-Risk Customers: Serve Your Fare with Extra Care.”

Everyone wants safe food. That’s why restaurants and foodservice operations, hospitality associations, colleges and universities, federal, state and local government agencies and consumer organizations across the country are encouraged to participate in National Food Safety Education Month.

Sponsored by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation's International Food Safety Council, National Food Safety Education Month is an initiative focused on heightening the awareness of the importance of food safety education to the restaurant and foodservice industry and is supported by many public and private sector organizations.

Created in 1994, the program’s goals are to reinforce food safety education and training by restaurant and foodservice workers and to inform the public about proper food handling and preparation at home. The Food Safety initiative also helps to heighten awareness about the importance of food safety education. Each year, a new theme and free training activities and posters are created for the restaurant and foodservice industry to help reinforce proper food safety practices and procedures.
