Food Safety

By Elijah Stahr

Canned foods can stay fresh for a long time.

Do not freeze or keep in high temperatures. If in the right environment they can last from 1-5 years depending on the food type.

Don't cross contaminate.

Keep raw meat away from other things, like vegetables. Remember to wash things that come in contact with the raw meat.

Make sure to avoid food-borne illness

Make sure to cook foods thoroughly.

Beef, pork and lamb: 145 degrees internal temperature.

Ground meat: 160 degrees

Poultry: 165 degrees

Serving food

Hot food should be held at 140 degrees or higher. Cold food should be held at 40 degrees or lower.
