Assessment

Is Your School Food Safe?

The Food-Safe School Needs Assessment and Planning Guide is a tool that can help your school assess its food safety policies, procedures, and programs and develop plans for improvement. This tool includes a simple, straightforward questionnaire, score card, and planning guide that give administrators, school staff, families, and students a chance to get involved and work together to create a food-safe school. A small investment of time can pay big dividends in improved school food safety, student health, well-being, and readiness to learn.

Promoting the health and safety of students is an important part of the fundamental mission of schools and includes providing young people with the knowledge and skills they need to become healthy and productive adults. Improving school food safety can also:

  • Increase safety and reduce liability.
  • Reduce absenteeism.
  • Lower substitute costs.
