A Mandate for Sponsors: A School Food Safety Program

What is HACCP?

  • A food safety program that focuses on managing or eliminating potential hazards/risks that could lead to food borne illness (FBI).
  • It differs from other programs for sanitation and personal hygiene because the emphasis is on FBI risk elimination and foods flow through a school foodservice facility.
  • It works to prevent food safety problems before they occur by identifying and eliminating or controlling possible hazards that can contaminate food as it moves through the foodservice facility.
