FOOD SAFETY GUIDELINES

Hairnets 
All participants will be required to wear a hairnet during the entire duration of meal packaging.  Everyone will be instructed to cover the entire surface of their head, with all loose strands of hair, including bangs, tucked into the hairnet. If an individual has no hair, they will also be required to wear a hairnet. The hairnets will be provided. 

Jewelry 
All participants who are packaging meals on the assembly lines will be required to remove all jewelry, with the exception of wedding rings/bands and medical bracelets. 

Food, Drinks and Tobacco
No food, drink or tobacco is permitted within 5 feet of the assembly lines. This includes water bottles and chewing gum. Participants will be asked to dispose of these items before reaching the assembly lines.

Attire
All attire worn in proximity to the food products and assembly lines must be clean and free from contamination. This includes outer garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

Personal Items
Participants will be instructed to place their personal items underneath the assembly line, prior to sanitizing their hands. Personal items such as purses, jackets, cell phones, cameras, etc must remain untouched for the duration of food packaging.

Hand Cleanliness
To minimize the risk of food contamination, participants will be required to clean their hands using Sani Hand Wipes and hand sanitizers prior to packaging food. If participants leave the food safe area, they must re-sanitize hands upon returning. Hands must also be re-sanitized if any personal items are touched, such as a cell phone or bag. Some participants will be instructed to also wear gloves depending on their position on the assembly line.
