NRA Launches National Food Safety Month

National Food Safety Month kicked off September 1 with the theme: “The Culture of Food Safety.”

The 2017 NFSM campaign, created by the NRA’s ServSafe program, focuses on how a foodservice operation can create a comprehensive culture of food safety. From the management level to the hourly employee, ServSafe concentrates on educating the industry to help mitigate the risks associated with foodservice. New training tools and resources will be made available each week including activities, posters, infographics, and videos. Themes include:

  • Week 1: What Is Food Safety?
  • Week 2: Handwashing
  • Week 3: The Role Of Food Safety
  • Week 4: Time & Temperature Control

NFSM, held annually in September, was created in 1994 by the NRA to heighten awareness about the importance of food safety education. For more information and resources on NFSM, visit
