Happy New Year from Senior Connections.
We would like to thank staff members from St. Francis in the Park, who helped us deliver extra holiday meals to our home delivered participants. Also, we would like to thank the children of Cathedral School and Lake Superior Elementary School for the beautiful holiday cards they made for our home delivered participants. They were fantastic and our participants enjoyed receiving them.
With the holidays, many of us have leftovers. Consumers don’t realize how quickly the holiday food leftovers can become unsafe or spoil. Proper food storage helps maintain food quality by retaining flavor, color, texture and nutrients, while reducing the chance of contracting a food borne illness.
The 4-Day Throw Away Campaign, which features a four as its mascot, is educating consumers about the dangers of food borne illnesses and the four-day guideline for eating, freezing or throwing away leftovers. If you would like further information you can check it out www.4daythrowaway.org. Learn about how food spoils, how to store perishable, semi-perishable and staple foods, and their expected storage life. The “4-day guideline” is a great standard to follow if you are unsure whether a leftover food item is OK to eat or not.
