The Georgia Department of Agriculture encourages sharing of information among regulators, industry, academia, and consumers. Our Food Safety Team uses outreach activities throughout the year to provide information on food safety and defense issues.
We provide information tables, and sometimes live presentations, at GDA Georgia Grown Showcase events, the Georgia National Fair, and Sunbelt Ag Expo. We take part in career and internship fairs throughout the state, and present at industry and commodity meetings upon request.
If you want to schedule a Food Safety presentation at your next event, contact Outreach@agr.georgia.gov. Please give us at least 2-3 weeks’ advance notice and provide us with:
Name, date and exact location of your event, including start/end times
Age/grade range if at a school, or any other audience/demographic details
Type of requested presentation (this determines what support material we need to bring)
Requested handouts - brochures, freebies, etc.
If we cannot take part in your event directly, we will be glad to send you handout materials.
