NRA offering new allergen awareness program for restaurateurs
The National Restaurant Association announced the launch of ServSafe Allergens Online Course, a new online training course from the creators of the ServSafe food safety program designed to help restaurants address food allergens. The education tool was developed in partnership with Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), a national food allergy nonprofit organization.
"The National Restaurant Association has been working diligently over the years to responsibly address the issue of food safety in restaurants, including food allergens," said William Weichelt, director of ServSafe for the NRA. "We are excited to partner with FARE on ServSafe Allergens to educate our restaurants and their employees, helping our members accommodate their guests' food allergies or other dietary requirements."
The ServSafe Allergens course is designed to help both front-of-the-house staff and back-of-the-house operations better understand how to accommodate the growing number of guests with food allergies.
The course is part of the Association's ServSafe Program of comprehensive education materials created to develop a skilled industry workforce.
