Eat Safe Campaign

Campaign runs Monday, September 9-Friday, September 27

In recognition of National Food Safety Education Month, Cornell Wellness is proud to present to you a month of "Eat Safe." Cornell Wellness will be providing 3 weeks of jampacked information at tabling events, workshops, and lectures that will help improve your awareness on keeping you, your food, and your kitchen safe.

  • Week 1 (Sept.9-15): Eat Safe Introductory Week. Every day during this week check the Cornell Wellness Facebook page for information on stats of Food-Bourne illnesses, who's more at risk, and signs & symptoms of food poisoning. On Thursday, September 12, come join the Cornell Wellness staff at Trillium Dining Hall, from 11:30am-1:30pm, at our tabling event. We will have informational handouts on eating safe, and an opportunity to win a small prize on the spot, plus a chance to win prizes valued up to $100 at the end of the month, by playing "Eat Safe Jeopardy" in person or virtually.
  • Week 2 (Sept. 16-22): Rules for Food Safety Week. Follow the Cornell Wellness Facebook page to stay up to date on cleaning vs. sanitizing, cooking food to the proper temperature, paying attention to the clock while cooking, serving food at the right temperature, and grilling safely.
