All staff who handles food and or snacks will have a food handler’s permit.
All staff handling bottles or baby food will also be required to have a food handler’s permit.
Food preparation will never be done at a sink that is used for hand washing. We have separate sinks available that are marked "Food Only" or "Hand washing Only" in the center.
The Coordinator will post a list of children’s food allergies and sensitivities in the kitchen and each of the classrooms. The coordinator is responsible for updating the list to be sure it is current and complete.
