- Remember, milk and all other dairy foods are perishable, so make sure you have made arrangements to ensure the product can be kept cold. Milk tastes best at 35 degrees. Other milk products should be kept at 33 – 41 degrees.
- Single-serve packaging is the ideal and preferred method to sample dairy foods at your event. Sampling product other than single-serve packaging requires extra precaution(s) due to local Health Department guidelines.
- Always check with your local Health Department when serving product in other than single-serve packaging for any special requirements you may need to follow.
- It’s a good idea to always have hand sanitizer and foodservice gloves available for volunteers serving product.
- Hand sanitizer should always be available for consumer use.
- Make sure to have trash receptacles nearby for waste.
- Remember to have paper towel and plenty of cleaning spray solution available to wipe any spills.
