What: Global Handwashing Day Event #FirstWeWashOurHands
When: Tuesday, October 15 at 2 p.m. EST
Where: Hosted by the non-profit Partnership for Food Safety Education on Zoom
The goal of the “First We Wash Our Hands” event on October 15 is to call attention to hand washing as the first step in recipe preparation.
The event will build community among the diversity of BAC Fighters who are committed to supporting consumers with evidence-based information on the importance of hand hygiene before and after handling food.
Through a live celebration with on-camera BAC Fighter groups, we will highlight diverse and effective ways that handwashing is encouraged among adults and children who prepare meals and snacks for themselves and their families at home, and among volunteers who prepare meals for at-risk audiences (including meals on wheels and food banks).
Established by the Global Handwashing Partnership in 2008, Global Handwashing Day is celebrated each year on October 15 as a way to increase awareness and understanding of the benefits of handwashing with soap.
