Resources to Educate Participants About Reducing the Risks of Foodborne Illness

The number of people engaging in outdoor events, including food-related activities, goes up in the summer. So too does the number of people who get sick from food poisoning. Pregnant women and young children are among those at highest risk for foodborne illnesses, making safe food handling particularly important for them.

Check out the resources below that WIC staff can use to educate participants on food safety to help reduce their risk of foodborne illness.

Severe Weather Specific Resources

Also available are CDC Educational Materials and Videos including social media graphics (also available in Spanish) and webinars hosted by the Partnership for Food Safety Education, such as Keeping Babies & Toddlers Safe from Foodborne Illness, Food Safety for the Reel World, and Health at Risk: Long-Term Health Effects of Foodborne Illness (some webinars offer CEU’s).
