Home Downloads Videos Lunch at Your Desk

Many Americans bring bag lunches to work - a sometimes healthier and less expensive option.  When bagging it at the office, always follow these food safety reminders:

  • Chill It! Walk your lunch to a refrigerator immediately upon arriving at work.  If a refrigerator is not available, include a frozen gel pack or frozen juice box with perishable food in an insulated lunch bag or lunch box.
  • Clean It! Wash hands and surfaces (including desktop) with warm, soapy water before and after preparing or eating food.
  • Toss It! After lunch, discard any uneaten perishable food and used food packaging and paper bags.  Reusing packaging could contaminate other food and cause foodborne illness.
