The present manual contains the five steps recommended for implementing a plan to improve the safe handling of food and water at local schools in Guatemala (and eventually in Honduras), so that these will be safe for consumption those who work at and attend the schools. These steps can be useful for Parent Advisory Councils in that they provide information on the process to follow and present instruments that they use.
This manual has been prepared with the objective of providing the Parent Advisory Councils with the necessary elements to enable them to prepare their plan for safe food and water in their schools, with participation of the various community actors. In addition, it can be used as a tool to provide guidelines for the implementation of projects to ensure the safety of food and water in schools.
This guide accompanies the Manual The 5 key ways to keep your food safe, which includes information on the five basic rules to ensure safe food and water, and thus to avoid food- and waterborne diseases.
