Picnic and barbecue season offers lots of opportunities for outdoor fun with family and friends. But these warm-weather events also open the door for food safety issues that might just spoil the party! As food heats up in summer temperatures, bacteria multiply rapidly – so knowing how to keep picnic food fresh and safe is a must.
Packing and carrying food to your picnic site
Setting up food outdoors:
Food safety starts with clean hands, even when you’re “roughing it” outdoors! Before you set out your feast, make sure your hands and all surfaces are clean. If you don’t have access to running water, use a water jug, soap and paper towels or bring moist disposable wipes.
Keep utensils and serving dishes clean as you prepare your food. Keep foods out of the sunlight whenever possible and cover with foil, plastic wrap or seal in containers.
Fresh and fabulous, delivered right to you!
