Food Safety

The safety and well being of your child is a top priority for Cumberland County Schools.  This is not just limited to your child’s physical safety, but also food safety in the cafeterias.  The Child Nutrition Services Department implements staff development training for employees starting at the beginning of the school year that continues throughout the remainder of the year.  Some important practices Child Nutrition Services has in place are:

HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points)

HACCP is a USDA program that allows the kitchens to have check points and look for potential areas of concern that may be the cause of a foodborne illness.  Important check points taught to the Child Nutrition Staff begin with the receiving of the food, storage of the food, preparation of the food, as well as serving of the food.  HACCP is taught and reviewed annually.  Cafeteria reviews are conducted to ensure HACCP is being implemented and followed correctly.

Serv Safe Sanitation Training

All cafeteria managers, assistant managers, and additional kitchen staff sit through this intensive class that is by the National Restaurant Association. Child Nutrition Services top priority is to serve your children well-balanced, nutritious, and safe food.  Employees receive this training every five years or before their expiration expires.
