Disaster Food Service & Canteen Operations – Training

Join us on Friday August 17th from 8:30am – 4:30pm for a free disaster training exercise designed to teach you how to serve survivors and first responders when disaster hits.

During a disaster, the first gesture of comfort The Salvation Army offers is often a cold drink and a hot meal from one of its mobile feeding units. The Disaster Food Service & Canteen Operations course is designed as the starting point for any disaster worker who wishes to be part of disaster food service operations.

Participants who complete the course will learn about different types of Salvation Army food service equipment, the essentials of building a food service team, canteen operations and maintenance, and the basics of menu planning.
