Greene County Extension is offering a “Safe Food-Food Safety Training” course on Thursday, May 24th at the Extension office in Jefferson from 5:30 to 7:30pm. The class will be led by Extension Nutrition and Wellness Specialist Ann Heuer. The training will cover how to handle food safely so that no one is exposed to foodborne illnesses. This is an opportunity for those wanting to have a food booth at the Bell Tower Festival, when the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) comes through Greene County and/or the Greene County Fair.

There’s no cost to participate in the training, if registered by May 17th. Otherwise it will be $10 per person after the 17th. To sign up call 386-2138 or stop by the Extension office.
