Food Safety Resource Library

The mission of the Center for Food Protection is to promote public health and prevent disease by assuring the safety and quality of the food supply. One of the ways that the Center for Food Protection accomplishes this is by providing guidance documents to retail food establishments to help inform food handling employees and organize food safety information. Guidance documents include cooking temperature charts, deli slicer cleaning guides, and blank template logs. The Resource Library is designed to match the organization of retail establishment inspection forms.

The Center for Food Protection has compiled our most frequently distributed food safety information sheets and template logs into a single, accessible document.  Our goal is to provide a comprehensive food safety document that can assist Rhode Island food establishments with training and ongoing active management. The complete binder documents can be accessed here:
