    The consequences of not preventing foodborne illness are grave and can include: serious and fatal illness, lost learning and teaching time, potential liability, and decreased family and community confidence in schools. This guide is a multifaceted implementation tool specifically designed to help school staff make their school food-safe as well assist schools in identifying gaps in food safety and develop an action plan for becoming food-safe. The recommendations in the guide are based on research, food science and evidence from exemplary practices in food safety and foodborne illness prevention, health education, and public health. The Action Guide toolkit contains several materials including: a how-to guide booklet; the how to become a food-safe school video in both VHS and DVD formats; a motivational Power Point presentation script; an administrator's briefing; a needs assessment and planning guide; action sheets for action team members; as well as additional resources from the National Coalition for Food-Safe Schools (NCFS). The how-to guide booklet provides brief data on foodborne illness in the U.S.; simple steps to prevent foodborne illnesses; and the elements of a food-safe school. In addition, it shows what the Action Guide is comprised of, examples of the roles school staff, families, students, and health departments can play in creating a food-safe school, as well as simple steps that can be taken to implement a food-safe program. The Needs Assessment and Planning Guide is an essential starting point for schools who wish to implement a food safety program. It contains instructions for the food-safe school team leader, a needs assessment questionnaire, planning questions, and steps for planning for improvement.
