Holiday Food Safety Twitter Chat
CDC invites you to participate in our second annual Holiday Food Safety Twitter Chat. The Twitter chat this year is designed to address the importance of safe food handling, healthy tips for preparing holiday meal favorites, and healthy and safe meal planning and preparation during the Holidays. Our theme this year will be:
Holiday Food Safety: Food Safety Experts Share Lists of What’s Naughty & Nice
The event was a huge hit last year—the largest twitter chat of its kind at the time—reaching 3.8 million people. The success of the event was largely due to CDC’s collaboration with a number of food safety partner organizations, including FDA, USDA, foodsafety.gov, and a host of others.
This year, we’re hoping to expand our reach and impact even further. CDC plans to partner with a number of guest food-smart connoisseurs, as well as local and national celebrity chefs and food bloggers to contribute their insight and expertise during the twitter chat. We hope your health department will join us for this important food safety awareness event for consumers on easy-to-remember tips for a safe and healthy season. Event details are below:
Date: Thursday, December 11, 2014
Time: 3:00 pm- 4:00 pm EST
To join, follow @CDC_eHealth on Twitter, and be sure to use the hashtag #CDCfoodchat when you participate in the chat.
