Food Safety Training

Below is a link to our Food Safety Training video. Feel free to share this with your organization’s volunteers and staff. This training is accessible all year.

We always notify agencies when their Food Safety certificate expires (every two years), and currently, there are not agencies in need of a new certificate until 2022. When that time comes, agencies in need of a new certificate will be emailed a notification to view the training video and be prompted to take the online quiz referenced in the training video. That quiz will be loaded on this page at that time.

USDA Training

Below is a link to our 2020 USDA Training for existing USDA agencies that are already participating in the program. Feel free to share this with your organization’s volunteers and staff. This Fall will be time for all existing USDA partner agencies to view a 2021 version of this video and to confirm viewing by completing an online form. That 2021 version and the online form will be loaded on this page this Fall and you will be notified via email when it’s ready. 

Below is a link for USDA Training for agencies interested in joining the USDA Program. The video describes the next steps you must take to proceed with the program.  

Wellness Pantry

A Wellness Pantry is a place that supports the health and well-being of the neighbors we serve. Lowcountry Food Bank provides partner pantries with training on how to set up their client choice pantry, signage to encourage clients to select a variety of healthy foods and resources to educate food-insecure neighbors on how to utilize food items. Become a Wellness Pantry partner by applying at select times of the year.
