The Student Nutrition Program (SNP) Food Safety and Nutrition workshop is a free workshop for co-ordinators and volunteers of Student Nutrition Programs in the City of Toronto. Participants will learn the basics of preparing safe, nutritious food that meets the Nutrition Guidelines.

Topics include:

  • Safe Food Handling
  • Cleaning and Sanitizing for Food Preparation
  • Meeting the Nutrition Guidelines
  • Reading Nutrition Labels

Who should attend?

Volunteer coordinators & other volunteers of Student Nutrition Programs in Toronto.

Why attend?

  • At least one person trained in food safety within the past two years must be present at the SNP at all times.
  • Those with Certificates of Attendance dated 2017 and earlier MUST attend a workshop in 2019.
  • This is a funding requirement for your SNP grant from the City of Toronto.

Two workshop options

  1. General: Introduction to meeting the SNP Nutrition Guidelines
