The Division of Environmental Health at the Department of Public Health and Social Services celebrated their 10th Annual Guam Food Safety Education Month with an Education Fair on Saturday, September 26 at the center court of the Micronesia Mall.
This year was a "Decade of Fighting Bac!" for the Division, providing the people of Guam with opportunities to learn about food safety, proper food handling and cooking, hand washing, and other means of ensuring safe preparation for families and businesses alike.
Sen. Dennis Rodriguez presented the Division with Resolution 193-33 (COR) commemorating and congratulating them for their continued educational outreach and to recognize the winners of the different contests sponsored by the division.
Winners in the Poster, Recipe and Video Contests were awarded with prizes from various business partners with most prizes sponsored by the Environmental Public Health Employees Association.
Sen. Rodriguez also presented the contest winners with a Legislative Certificate congratulating them on their success.
Hundreds of people participated the event, walking away with many of the Divisions' promotional items.
Congratulations to DEH, and Si Yu'os Ma'ase' for your work in educating our people on keeping food safe from port to plate!
