Food safety is important to everyone, yet the average person lacks the understanding of how important it truly is or what the term really means.
In today’s fast-paced world who has time to worry about food safety?
Luckily it is becoming easier to be plugged into whats happening. Ben Chapman, assistant professor and food-safety extension specialist at North Carolina State University has developed a unique way to share food safety experiences by utilizing social media.
The project is called ” The Citizen Food Safety project” and calls people to post their pictures related to food safety experiences (both good and bad) on Twitter and Instsagram by using #citizenfoodsafety. You can view the photos posted by going to: http://citizenfoodsafety.tumblr.com/
At Freshtemp, we are all about promoting food safety and raising awareness in any way we can. We support Ben with this creative project and encourage everyone to participate!
