It is a good idea for at least some of your staff and volunteers selling food to be trained in food and nutrition and food hygiene, and be aware of health and safety issues.

Where to go for training

  • City and Guilds
  • Colleges in your area may well run training courses
  • Councils also often run skills training courses
