THE U-S DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE BROUGHT FOOD
SAFETY LESSONS TO THE KENDALL DEMONSTRATION
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ON THE CAMPUS OF GALLAUDET
UNIVERSITY IN WASHINGTON D-C.
U-S-D-A'S FOOD SAFETY AND INSPECTION SERVICE, OR
F-S-I-S, STAGED A FOOD SAFEY EDUCATION CAMP TO
HELP TEACH DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING STUDENTS THE
IMPORTANCE OF FOOD SAFETY.
Nancy Berrigan: The students also have an
opportunity to really understand how to prepare
foods, how to keep them at the right temperatures,
what needs to be refrigerated, or frozen or otherwise.
Elyias Assefat: I learned about food safety and if
mold or bacteria grows it can make you sick and if
you leave it on the counter for under two
hours it's fine but if you leave it out for over two
hours, it'll make you sick.
THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL ESTIMATE THAT
ANNUALLY FIVE THOUSAND DEATHS IN THE U-S RESULT
FROM FOOD BORNE ILLNESS.
F-S-I-S BELIEVES TEACHING CHILDREN THE PRINCIPLES OF
CLEAN, SEPARATE, COOK AND CHILL CAN HELP PREVENT
ILLNESS AND SAVE LIVES.
Cody Thornton: It's important to teach
children food safety lessons because they don't
yet understand the problems that mundane
actions that they do when they eat their food, what
that effect could be on them.
Bob Ellison: For more information on food safety
you can call one eight eight eight m-p hotline or
go online at f-s-i-s at u-s-d-a dot gov.
in Washington D-C for the U-S Department of Agriculture,
