We will be recording our next Food Safety Partnership Panel during the month of June, and we’re looking for volunteers to take part in this upcoming episode.  Each Partnership Panel is comprised of consumer, food service industry, and regulatory authority representatives who take part in discussing current topics related to food safety, so the only prerequisite for participation is a shared interest in the topic being discussed.

If you are interested in being a part of our next panel, please contact our Food Program Manager, Karen Gulley, at 678-385-5066.
