Food Safety On The Go

Food Safety on the Go is a food safety training program for staff, volunteers and clients of home-delivered meal programs. It was first developed in 2012 by the University of Maryland’s Department of Nutrition and Food Science, in collaboration with the Meals on Wheels America, under a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA/NIFA).

Food Safety on the Go is made up of 5 staff modules and client education downloads. Module 1: Food safety basics, provides an overview of food safety for all staff and volunteers. Modules 2 through 5 are for specific staff within a senior nutrition program and Module 6 is for clients:

  • Module 2 is for the program director
  • Module 3 is for the food service management staff
  • Module 4 is for food service workers (staff and volunteers)
  • Module 5 is for drivers (staff and volunteers)
  • Module 6 is for clients (templates for educational materials/leave behinds).


Client educational materials are available for download as well in the form of flyers for drivers to give to clients. All staff and volunteers should complete Module 1, as well as other relevant modules.
