The project team will reduce toxics use in food service by compiling information on certified green cleaning products, practices and benefits and then distributing that information during routine public health inspections of commercial and institutional kitchens. The project team will develop a pre-survey of the current cleaning and disinfection products and practices used in food service operations and restaurant kitchens in Franklin, Hampshire and Berkshire counties in Western Massachusetts. They will develop a “Keep it $imple Guide to Green Cleaning in Food service” and distribute it to food service establishments during health inspections. The team will provide “Introduction to Green Cleaning” training to food service operators both on-site and on-line.
