ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the food safety solution of the food service department at Glendora Unified School District in California for its meat menus. The department's food service director Patty Cunningham came up with a creative solution for making all the meats on her menus safe. Aside from purchasing prepared products, she turns over raw product to a local processor. They also make use of the processor and boil-in-bag method, in which food safety is controlled at the processor facility and then at the schools' kitchens.
