Resources

This page is where I’ll post links to some of the more useful food safety resources I’ve found & also to random interesting science things. Will be updated periodically…

Food safety for at-risk populations:

Fun stuff:

Giant plush microbes (because who doesn’t want a stuffed pathogen on their desk?). Also a great way to introduce kids to science and the concept of germs (nope, I’m not getting paid for this, or even getting a free microbe…) https://www.giantmicrobes.com/us/main/nasty-germs  https://www.giantmicrobes.com/us/main/microbiome-and-digestion
