In an effort to help Fulton County restaurants and the public understand food safety regulations, the Georgia Restaurant Association has scheduled a food code briefing for Fulton County food service establishments.
The event will be held 2-4 p.m. Wednesday at the association’s office, located in Piedmont Place, 3520 Piedmont Road, Suite 130, Atlanta.
Georgia’s code requires restaurants to have a certified food safety manager on staff to ensure that all employees understand and practice the regulations. The code also defines how often restaurants are inspected and what constitutes a violation against the rules. Health services educators will provide general information and answer questions, said Ryan Costigan, GRA’s manager of membership.
Rachel Mathews, marketing and communications coordinator with GRA, said although the event is open to the public, seating is limited. She encourages people to register online at tinyurl.com/bsh9o3a to ensure spacing is available. If not,
