You Make a Difference Every Day!
Civil Rights Training 2023
Each year volunteers need to review Civil Rights training to remind us all of how we treat the clients who visit us for food aid.
Please watch the video, review the flyer on Volunteer Responsibilities, and then complete the form. If you're unable to access the on-line form, contact Billie Stevens to let her know you completed the training.
We take food safety seriously at FISH.
All volunteers who have been instructed by Billie Stevens that they need this training should review the food safety video carefully. After watching it, take the quiz, and then let Billie know you've done the training so she can record your participation.

The FoodKeeper helps you understand food and beverages storage. It will help you maximize the freshness and quality of items. By doing so you will be able to keep items fresh longer than if they were not stored properly. It was developed by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service, with Cornell University and the Food Marketing Institute. It is also available as a mobile application for Android and Apple devices.
