More than 45 million Americans suffer from food allergy and sensitivity related illnesses
and each year that number increases significantly. Plenty of your customers are included in that figure,
and if you’re not prepared to meet their unique needs, don’t count on them risking their health to dine in your establishment.
The Washington Hospitality Education Foundation is taking the first step to help the Washington state food industry ensure that their staffs are educated on how to serve guests with special food allergy needs. We offer an employee level training offered online (ServSafe Allergen).
