Update & Requests
Good Morning! I want to give you a few updates. According to Suzanne Driessen attendance of her Food Safety classes have been really good. However at this time only 1,790 folks have registered with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. Please be aware that even if you have attended the Food Safety class you still have to register with the MDA to become a cottage food producer. You can register online here: Cottage Food Producer Registration
Please be advised that the date for the Minneapolis cottage food class had to be rescheduled because the room wasn’t available. It will be on July 20, 2017 from 9 AM to 12 PM. It will be held in Minneapolis at the University of Minnesota Robert J. Jones Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center.
Suzanne Driessen and her staff at the University of Minnesota Extension are currently working on an online food safety course. She is looking for volunteers that would be interested in reviewing this online course and provide feedback. You would receive a Tier 2 certificate for participating. If you are interested please contact her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will end this on a note of interest, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture has a new logo. I don’t know, I kind of preferred the old one. See what you think. 🙂
Have a great week everyone!
