End date

Objective
In the two-year time frame of this project, there are several key objectives that will support the growth and expansion of our already-existing food safety outreach/education program: 1) educate small, under-served farmers in California about the new FSMA information and rules, 2) develop and disseminate multilingual educational materials about FSMA, GAPs, and food safety, 3) partner with farmer incubator organizations throughout the state and conferences that small farmers attend to provide in-person food safety trainings and 4) develop a model farm program in different parts of the state that creates local examples where growers can go learn from a fellow farmer about how they integrated GAPs into their farming practices and brought their farm into FSMA compliance.
