The Partnership for Food Safety Education delivers trusted, science-based behavioral health messaging and a network of resources that support consumers in their efforts to reduce risk of foodborne illness. We work with an active network of 13,000 health and food safety educators – we call them BAC Fighters!- and support them by making their work more visible, collaborative, and effective. These BAC Fighters are connecting each year with an estimated 7.5 million consumers –helping them to protect their health through safe food handling and hand hygiene. See “Who is educating consumers about reducing risk of foodborne illness.” Thanks to the support of our 26 Partner Organizations and Federal Liaisons, we’re able to help millions of consumers keep top-of-mind the preventive practices that destroy or hinder the growth and spread of dangerous foodborne pathogens that can cause serious illness and even death.
It’s who we are and how we work that makes the Partnership so successful:
The Partnership is funded by contributions, grants, and in-kind support for special projects provided by corporations, government agencies, independent foundations, and other non-profit organizations.
The Partnership is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
The Partnership is recognized as a Guide Star Exchange Gold Participant.
