Wash your paws, Georgia!


World food safety starts at the local level! Ines Beltran, a Family and Consumer Sciences Agent with the University of Georgia Extension Service, does her part for food safety by teaching people about the importance of hand washing.

Ines teaches residents of Gwinnett County, GA about the importance of hand washing by using the poster, Wash Your Paws, Georgia, created by Judy Harrison, UGA Extension Food Safety Specialist. Ines has distributed 420 posters in public libraries, schools, childcares, senior centers, parks and recreations facilities, and community organizations. She’s also delivered info about hand washing during food preparation to 106 parents and senior citizens.

Thank you, Ines for focusing on Georgia to achieve world health!
